Verdict

Jim Bolger has won two of the four renewals and Icy Lady should attract support after showing very good speed in both starts over the minimum trip. She should be better over this extra furlong, though she was behind TIMBUKTU here last time and Aidan O'Brien's filly was probably a bit unlucky that day as she was denied a clear run at a crucial stage - she should make amends. Queen Anne wasn't far behind the pair and had early finished in front of Icy Lady at Navan so she should be better suited by this trip. Simply A Star also represents Ballydoyle and this superbly-bred daughter of Giant's Causeway, who is a half-sister to Wading and Bracelet, looks the pick of the newcomers and is certainly one to note for the future.
