Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has two entries in this moderate contest and will be hoping for a pre-Arc boost from either PARK AVENUE or Imperator Augustus. The pair were beaten a long way behind Stage Master at the Curragh a week ago but the former had run well behind Factum here previously and his experience on the surface can count. Free Art has raced in much better company including against Pathfork and Zoffany so must be taken very seriously though he didn't look to have made much progress when only fourth here last time.
