Verdict

The Ballydoyle newcomers Snow and Terrific are both by Galileo. Jockey bookings and the market will indicate which is the more likely to do the business here. Pirita should go well as she was sent off favourite at Fairyhouse earlier this month and looks sure to be suited by the extra furlong but Calorie would need to improve considerably on her fourth at Leopardstown to figure. Adelana and Gold Necklace would both be interesting if attracting market support but Jessie Harrington won this in 2011 and should have ODE TO PSYCHE ready to do herself justice. She is by Dansili out of a Sadler's Wells mare so the trip won't be a problem.
