Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this a year ago and Sloane Street will attract attention after her best run to date over a slightly longer trip three weeks ago. She's thoroughly exposed, however, while Eva's Time has been very disappointing when strongly fancied in her two latest runs though this surface may bring out the best in her. Ariyfa, whose dam is a half-sister to Azamour, made a very promising debut behind Betrothed at Naas in August but the form hasn't worked out. ANSAAB has had just three runs and looked a certain future winner when a very good third at the Curragh last month. He subsequently disappointed at Cork but in the hope that he'll do better on Polytrack he gets the vote to make amends.
