Verdict

Aidan O'Brien had seven of the original entries and Joseph four. The former relies on DALI, who cost $525,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a two-year-old all-weather winner. Joseph has two runners, True Blue Moon is related to plenty of winners, though none over a trip this short, while Feadan is a half-sister to a useful 6f winner. Johnny Murtagh's Mister Magic is the fourth foal of a mare who has already produced three winners over this trip so he should have pace to burn. In the Dip made late headway on her debut here last month and already looks as though she needs further though the form has been boosted by the subsequent victory of the runner-up.
