Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this last year with Twirl, who was drawn 17 and ridden by Seamie Heffernan. Today's entry A STAR IS BORN is drawn in the same box with the same rider and the full-sister to Rip Van Winkle can make a winning debut. Jim Bolger's outstanding year continues unabated and any one of his three entries could take this though Teoirim has easily the best of the draw and could come out on top. Fitrah made a pleasing debut at Naas and will have come on for the run and Island In The Sun, another daughter of Galileo and a half-sister to numerous winners, is another newcomer to keep an eye on.
