Verdict

Aidan O’Brien is no stranger to winning this and both of his most recent winners, Ballydoyle and Found, were placed in the Moyglare Stud Stakes over 7f at the Curragh before landing this. MAGICAL finished runner-up in the latter contest three weeks ago and, having won her maiden over today’s trip earlier, should go very close. The home challenge is led by the unbeaten Polydream, who beat subsequent May Hill winner Laurens, to land a Group 3 at Deauville last time while Soustraction beat Godolphin’s Wild Illusion over track and trip on her latest start. Mission Impassible has won in Listed company but further progress is expected from Jean-Claude Rouget’s filly and she may well improve past Zonza and Germany’s Narella.
