Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won two of the last three and has found a good opportunity for RUBY TUESDAY to continue the sequence. She's one of the best-bred fillies in training and is entered in all the main events and caught the eye in no uncertain terms on her debut at Leopardstown last month. She's Mine started favourite for that contest and ran quite well though she already had experience from last season. Lahinch Classics, like the selection, is by Galileo so her opening run over 7f at Leopardstown in September was a very promising run and signalled better things to come. Teoleena reappeared with a huge weight in a handicap and ran well enough despite missing the break so she should be winning races this season as should Westpieser, who couldn't quite get to Sinndar Desert over the track and trip last time.
