Verdict

Bright Idea was supported on his debut behind Lope Y Fernanzez here three weeks ago and ran well for a long way before fading. His stable also run Darth Vader, who showed the benefit of his opening run when very nearly making all at Navan, only caught close home by Royal Lytham with Prince Of Naples close-up in third. The winner is trained by Aidan O'Brien, who also has two entries here. MASTEROFFOXHOUNDS took a long time to warm to his task over 7f at Leopardstown but showed real potential. The runner-up won subsequently and ran well at Ascot and though It's a surprise to see him drop in trip he should be good enough with normal progress. The stable also run the newcomer Royal Dornoch, a 240,000gns son of Gleneagles and a half-brother to the useful Hawksmoor. Meaningful Vote and National Asset should have plenty of pace and are others to note in an interesting opener.
