PERSIA, by Galileo out of the smart Just Pretending, never got into contention behind Sinawann at the Curragh but made some late headway and should have come on enough to make his presence felt here. Dark Pine, who finished around 6l in front, had the benefit of experience and may not confirm the form but the selection's stable companion Serpentine, another son of Galileo and a full-brother to three Group winners, is an interesting newcomer. Sacramento was always in the front rank when beaten a couple of lengths at Leopardstown while Yulong Pearlisland showed good pace on soft ground at Killarney.
