Verdict

This has been run three times and Michael Halford has won them all with short-priced favourites so watch out for his newcomer Karakour, a beautifully-bred son of Dalakhani. Pat Smullen takes the ride rather than Glow In The Dark for Dermot Weld so the hint should be noted. Joseph O'Brien had several entries at the early stage and relies on IRISH MINISTER. A half-brother to four winners, he made an eye-catching debut when staying on strongly over 7f last month so the longer trip can enable him to get off the mark. Gryffyndor has shown a bit of potential in his two runs on the track while Bonnie Baugh ran well over 7f last week, her first start for Pru Dobbs.
