Verdict

Wexford Opera has to be the form pick on his debut second to subsequent Phoenix Stakes winner Pedro The Great but he's been drawn right on the outside which may hinder his prospects. Where has been showing good pace on heavy going and from her low position looks certain to be in the mix on a surface that's likely to suit. She's not certain to have the edge over stablemate Quadriga, who led for a long way on soft ground over 7f at the Curragh and will have come on a bundle for the run. THREE SEA CAPTAINS was a long odds-on loser at the Curragh after a cracking debut at Naas but didn't look suited by the early crawl and was caught flat-footed. With a stronger pace likely he can recoup losses.
