Verdict

Anthony Van Dyck won this last year on his second start and ARTHUR'S KINGDOM can follow suit for the yard. Runner-up to odds-on stable companion Toronto at Leopardstown with the remainder well beaten he should have come on enough to land this. Another Ballydoyle inmate, War Cabinet, is by Galileo out of the Group 1 winner Simply Perfect and a full-brother to three winners while the stable also run Emperor Of The Sun, a half-brother to a Group 1 winner in Australia. Hint Of Scars made a very promising start at the Curragh and his stable continue in top form so he looks the main threat to the Ballydoyle trio.
