Aidan O'Brien has won three of the last four and, from an original entry of seven, has chosen Hail The Hero to do the business this time though he'll need to improve greatly from a disappointing debut at Galway where he was well supported. VERT DE GRECE has to be the form pick on his excellent second to Convergence over this track and trip in June where he stayed on strongly at the finish. Curvy also made her debut here and showed up well on the fast going but whether tonight's ground will suit is unknown. The newcomer Botany Bay is by Galileo and a half-brother to the useful Coolibah while Jim Bolger's Selskar Abbey is related to several winners and will know his job.
