This has been run six times and Aidan O'Brien has won three. From a huge entry at the early stage, ILLINOIS, a son of Galileo out of a 7f Group 3 winner, has been selected to do the honours for the team and can make a winning start. Warbird should provide a stiff test as he ran well enough in what looked a strong Curragh maiden on his debut to suggest he'll win races while Silver Gauntlet is one to note for the future though probably over much further. St James Gate makes up the quartet and he's another likely to be suited by a longer trip in time.
