    Verdict

    Aidan O'Brien had seven entered at the early stage and relies on three. The newcomer Sweetasever is from the first crop of Power out of a mare from the family of Rock Of Gibraltar. Brave Anna and How both showed up nicely in the race won by stable companion Roly Poly at Naas though VELVETEEN, who started favourite, finished in front of the pair of them. The latter didn't get the run of the race and with that under her belt can gain compensation. Magical Fire missed the break on her debut at Naas but caught the eye with late headway and will have come on a bundle for the experience. Michael Halford has his horses in good form so Hunaina is one to keep an eye on.
