Verdict

Joseph O'Brien takes the ride on Battle Of Saratoga, whose form early last summer would probably be good enough, but he's become disappointing. Colm O'Donoghue is on board the stable's newcomer EL SALVADOR, who may be good enough to make a winning start as he's related to some useful performers and the Irish Derby entry is out of a Coronation Stakes winner. Handazan showed plenty of potential last season and his opening run this term at Dundalk should be ignored as he finished lame. Mizani can do best of the remainder with experience though there are several well-connected newcomers entered including Leyland and Nashville.
