      Verdict

      King Of Athens looks best of the Ballydoyle pair but was rather low-key at Goodwood when well beaten in maiden company and is best watched at present. Spirit Of Sahara is an interesting newcomer for Joseph O'Brien but ARRANMORE sets a decent standard here and can get off the mark at the third time of asking. The Bolger colt has come home runner-up on both starts against useful types to say the least and can go better under an expected attacking ride from Kevin Manning. Reducta was backed into favouritism on debut at Navan and in that respect was a tad disappointing but she came home quite nicely in the end and seems a surefire improver on that evidence.
