Aidan O'Brien won this last year with Leading Light and is doubly represented with newcomer Adjusted, a son of Montjeu out of a 1m1f winner, and BUONARROTI, who showed up nicely once getting the hang of things behind stablemate Carlo Bugatti at Galway and can improve enough to take this. Whitey O'Gwaun started favourite in that race after a fine opening run behind War Command and finished runner-up so he's an obvious threat while Dai Bando has come up against some useful opposition without being disgraced. Screenshot ran well behind Craftsman on heavy ground at Listowel and along with Ambushamah and Jim Bolger's newcomer Evason give this a really strong look.
