Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won the first running of this with Amazing Beauty and ERNEST HEMINGWAY can keep the record intact. A son of Galileo out of a mare who won the Lingfield Oaks Trial, he's in the Derby's at Epsom and the Curragh and has to succeed here to justify those entries. Teodolite made her debut in very testing conditions at Tipperary in October and performed with credit. With her yard in such good heart she looks a major player but Handazan had a disappointing first campaign and will need to do much better. Hes Our Music ran well in two races over much shorter trips on this track late last summer and is expected to be suited by this distance.
