Atlantic Sea didn't perform badly on his debut over 6f here last month and will have come on enough to get involved though newcomer Rodayna will probably need to be something a bit special to make a successful start. Glassatura has been competing at a high level and did very well to finish runner-up to Friendship in a premier nursery at Tipperary. She'll certainly take some beating here but Aidan O'Brien has won the last three of these and introduces GIOVANNI BOLDINI, who cost $190,000 as a foal and a whopping $675,000 as a yearling so must have impressed someone. He's in all the top juvenile races and has to win here to justify those entries.
