Jim Bolger won this a year ago with the newcomer Sagacious and he's double represented today. Kevin Manning has chosen Banimpire over Dancing On Turf and his mount, a daughter of Holy Roman Emperor, is respected. Asfurah's Image is a half-sister to numerous winners, all beyond a mile, so she should be suited by this trip on her first start, a remark that also applies to the Montjeu filly Mountain Woman. Ballydoyle are also doubly represented and Johnny Murtagh has plumped for the Galileo filly SPIN, who had a nice introduction behind Kissable at Leopardstown and is certain to have benefited from the experience. Her stablemate Poinsettia, another daughter of Galileo, is out of a mare who scored over a mile as a juvenile and she is definitely one to keep an eye on for the future.
