Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won this seven times in the past 15 years and has three entries this time. Jockey bookings suggest WORDS is the one to be on and the daughter of Dansili out of the Irish Oaks winner Moonstone can prove better at this stage than Cocoon and Qualify and keep up the stable tradition. Curlylocks is also owned by the Coolmore team and started a short-priced favourite on her debut at Leopardstown but failed to quicken and may need another furlong. Brown Bee and Sugarmill both showed good pace for a long way in that latter event and will improve while Jim Bolger's Vitalized, from the first crop of the speedy Vocalised, could prove best of the remainder.
