Verdict

Drombeg Dream is a heavy ground specialist and could spring a surprise if the going turns testing. Pincheck is the top-rated here and he's returned from a spell in the USA in decent form though any further rain wouldn't be in his favour. Verbal Dexterity has disappointed since his two-year-old days though ran well when runner-up in a Leopardstown Group 3 in May but the vote goes to the lightly-raced AMEDEO MODIGLIANI. Aidan O'Brien's son of Galileo has only had four starts and hasn't run since a close fourth in a Listed event at Leopardstown in April but has more scope than most and won't mind the conditions. Laughifyouwant has been in good form in handicaps but this is a step-up so Up Helly Aa looks more of a threat after a very good run behind the smart Mohawk in the Group 3 Meld Stakes at Leopardstown.
