Verdict

Joseph O'Brien has four entries with Dynabee the op-rated of them despite only having had three starts. She didn't get the run of the race behind I'm So Fancy at the Curragh a couple of weeks ago and can do better. Luca Cumani sends the Coolmore-owned Alwaysandforever from the UK and she's finished close up at this level on a couple of occasions, though looks vulnerable to a less-exposed type. PRINCESS YAIZA has been running well all summer without much luck and only just failed to hold Nessun Dorma in a premier handicap at the Curragh with Saturday's Leopardstown winner Limini back in third. She's well up to this class while Rovetta gets a chance at this level after completing a hat-trick with victories over hurdles and on the Flat here before landing a tough handicap at the Curragh. Ballet Shoes has already won at this level but takes a huge leap in trip on her return from a break and though Romiyna is well regarded she's only raced on fast going to date.
