Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this last year with Together, who was making her second appearance. The Coolmore team have four of the nine entries here and the only one with experience is Devotion, who showed only moderate form on her debut behind Janey Muddles at the Curragh but will undoubtedly improve. The other Ballydoyle entry, Chieftess, is joined by David Wachman's pair Money Spider and Took with preference for the latter but Jim Bolger's youngsters have been in such outstanding form that RIGOLETTA is given the nod. A daughter of Teofilio, she is related to six winners and out of a speedy mare who won a Listed contest and this trip should be ideal on her debut. Dark Danger is speedily-bred and one to note as is Yellow Rosebud, a half-sister to three winners around this trip.
