Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has a strong hand with three entries and it's GALILEAN who looks the one to be on. He's undoubtedly been disappointing so far but didn't get the run of the race at the Curragh on Monday and the fact that he's making a quick reappearance in a nursery is significant. Stable companions Circus Ring and Tang Dynasty have looked moderate while Jose Echegaray ran a shocker on heavy going at Listowel after landing a Sligo maiden in similar conditions. Althiba hasn't shown much in her three starts but Rock In Peace looks a threat as he was staying on over 7f at Dundalk and the longer trip should suit.
