Ruler Of The World may have disappointed in Sunday's Derby but Ballydoyle was still churning out the winners at the Curragh and Forester was only beaten half-a-length on his reappearance at Naas, The cheekpieces remain in place and the three-year-old looks fairly treated off a mark of 99 though faces no easy task. Bensoon won over course and distance in May while Brog Deas is weighted to reverse Cork running with Morning With Ivan and again beat Auden, though does have his quirks. EDITH COWAN was in good form at Leopardstown last month and won't be fazed by the extra furlong. She may just have another race in her off her new mark but Back Burner is struggling at present.
