Verdict

Inca Gold and stablemate Pipes Of Peace are both by Galileo but whereas the former, who only found one too good over this trip on his debut at the Curragh, has a staying pedigree, the latter is related to a winning sprinter. Both are nice long-term prospects but could find the filly BROOKLYN'S ROSE a tough nut to crack as Ger Lyon's daughter of Holy Roman Emperor overcame a tardy start to score under hands and heels over 6f on her introduction at Fairyhouse and only has a small penalty. Radio Silence may do better with this run under his belt.
