In depth

Verdict

EDWARD HOPPER will know more today with last month’s debut at Leopardstown under his belt and gets the speculative vote for Ger Lyons. The latter trained the winner when Yulong Voice finished third at Bellewstown on his introduction and Luke Short looks best of the rest with experience. Benignitas is preferred to stablemate Solar System of Jim Bolger’s duo while Brook On Fifth is related to a Group 3 winner. Zoheyr, Differentiate and Dark Design are just a few of the other newcomers to note with the betting likely to offer some clues.
