Aidan O'Brien is quick to put blinkers on PROPHESY, who hung badly when only third behind Tarcisio over the C&D last week. Providing they have the desired effect he can gain his first victory, though Cheerful Giver will be no pushover as he looked ready for a step-up to this trip when a close third at Navan a week ago. Disagree, who was over four lengths behind on his debut, should get closer here while Vegas Rocks showed ability on his debut at Leopardstown and his pedigree suggests this trip will be ideal.
