Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won this the past three times it's been run and Siege Of Orleans will surely be capable of better than he showed at the Curragh last month where he was beaten 7l behind Accepted. Prologue ran well for a long way behind Gleneagles over this trip at the Curragh and will improve as will fourth-placed Pass The Trophy but it's COLOUR RHAPSODY who gets the vote after staying on strongly from the rear in the race won by Words at the Curragh. Initial made his debut on the opening day of the Flat season and the 5f proved inadequate so with Galway looming he's one to keep an eye on.
