This has been run seven times and every favourite has been successful. DOROTHY PARKER has the best form and is likely to be the market leader though it's a surprise to see her running over this trip as she's been staying on over further. She's given the nod due to the lack of reasonable alternatives as though Beau Satchel found some improvement at Cork it was over an extra furlong on soft ground. The Home Ruler was beaten a long way when tackling fast going for the first time at Naas but any moves for either of the newcomers should be noted.
