Verdict

Dermot Weld won this last year with Solar Verde and can take this with FASTIDIOUS, whose close second to Arbitrageur in what looked a strong maiden here earlier this month looks the best form on view. Khyber Pass has only raced at Dundalk but made a very pleasing return after a long break recently and will have come on a bundle for the run. Gun Shoot showed some promise over a mile at Navan in June and found 1m2f stretching her stamina at Down Royal nine days ago while Bitsanbobs is also dropping back in trip after showing up for much of the way over a mile at Killarney.
