Aidan O'Brien has won the last two renewals but John Oxx has won it four times in the past 10 years. O'Brien's newcomer Sloane Street is by Hurricane Run out of a mare from a high-class German family. She should know her job as should the Oxx-trained newcomer Kalabaya, by Sinndar out of a half-sister to the brilliant Kalanisi. Oxx also saddles Kastania, who looked ready for a step-up in trip when fourth to Terminal Velocity over 1m2f at the Curragh. The Aga Khan, who owns Kalabaya and Kastania, is also responsible for the Mick Halford-trained HESAMIYA and it's the son of Tiger Hill who gets the vote after a very promising debut behind Malayan Mist, who runs earlier on the card, at Gowran on May Day.
