Aidan O'Brien has been unable to get a race out of SIMPLY A STAR but this looks her opportunity. She showed good pace over 7f before dropping down to the minimum in a Tipperary Listed contest and making Accepted pull out the stops. She faces stiff competition from Kasbah, whose close efforts behind War Envoy and Kool Kompany is very useful form though both runs were over 6f and he may just get outpaced by the selection. Sassy But Classy was a 33/1 chance when making her debut here but ran well and there's more to come while Lady Mandeville showed good pace for a long way at Bellewstown though didn't find much at the finish.
