Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this last year with Amazing Beauty, who never won again. He'll be hoping history doesn't repeat itself with the superbly-bred BETTERBETTERBETTER, a daughter of Galileo and closely related to numerous winners including Irish 1000 Guineas winner Yesterday. Entered in all the early classics, she was outpaced by Princess Highway after attempting to make all at Leopardstown but the pair looked decidedly useful and much more is expected. O'Brien also runs Demurely, another daughter of Galileo and equally as well connected as she's a half-sister to Irish Oaks winner Moonstone and is another with classic entries. Jim Bolger's Miss Ekaterina cost 150,000 euros as a foal and the daughter of Teofilio will know her job while Sinetta will have come on for her debut effort at Navan in October.
