Verdict

SORT IT OUT beat Arbre De Vie a length in this a year ago and looks to have been laid out for another crack. Edward O'Grady's charge has only had two subsequent runs, both at Grade level, and though 6lb higher than last year is taken to stage a repeat. The runner-up has also been lightly raced subsequently but has gone well so should make a bold bid to go one better. The latter's stable companion Bamako Morviere was going on strongly at the finish when fourth over the minimum earlier this week and is definitely one to keep an eye on while the lightly-raced Anibale Fly has been a beaten favourite the last twice since a very good run behind Bellshill in a Grade 1 at Naas. Desoto County has been running well and should be suited by the step up in trip and Jonjo O'Neill's Champagne At Tara must have a real chance of going one better after an excellent run behind Party Rock in a Grade 3 handicap at Aintree. Cassells Rock missed a race here earlier in the week and was only narrowly beaten at the fixture a year ago.
