Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this last year with 1000 Guineas heroine Homecoming Queen but it's doubtful there are many this time with classic pretensions. Desiderata should be able to reverse Sligo running with the more exposed Randall's Alannah on 9lb better terms but could be vulnerable against fellow handicap debutante ESTINAAD. She just found a mile beyond her at the Curragh earlier this month but looked to be going the right way when fourth over this trip at Loepardstown earlier and can improve past Fromajacktoaking, who only won a claimer at Down Royal 10 days ago. Henry Higgins may be the pick of the remainder.
