Verdict

Aidan O'Brien confuses matters with a trio of runners though PALACE looks the stable's main hope and she should get back on the winning trail despite this being her seventh start since she made her debut in April. Her presence in the Irish 1000 Guineas and the Oaks at Epsom suggests she's well regarded and though beaten in a Naas Listed race last month the drop back in trip should be in her favour and she holds stablemate Beyond Brilliance on that run. Terrific has been racing over further and scored on her only start at this trip. Johnny Murtagh's horses are in top form but Naas handicap winner Dalkova will need another gear in this company while prospective punters would need to forgive a rare poor effort by Exactment at Fairyhouse. Booker couldn't hack it in Group 3 company at Leopardstown after scoring over 6f at the Curragh while Colour Blue has looked just short of this class in previous starts.
