Aidan O'Brien has been trying to get a race out of DRACO for some time and should finally achieve it here. Unlike the majority of his stablemates, he's bred for this job and would probably have beaten Most Peculiar at Galway had he jumped with more fluency. Rufino has been beaten a long way in all three starts and Queen's Ballerina was well beaten on her hurdling debut so the moderate Mind The Pennies may be the one to chase home the selection.
