Giuliana's fifth place behind subsequent Group 1 winner Joan Of Arc at the Curragh in March was a fine effort though it was on very testing ground. The winner's yard is represented by Awhile, a daughter of War Front out of a mare who has produced winners with her first five foals to race. Captain Attridge was well beaten into second at Dundalk but the expensive Breeze-up purchase ALESSANDRO ALGARDI really caught the eye over 6f at the Curragh, staying on strongly in a big field, and looks the one to beat.
