Potala Palace never got into the race on his debut over 6f at Fairyhouse but stayed on nicely and his pedigree suggests he'll be much better suited by this trip and further. Justifier is a half-brother to two winners at around this trip and Ger Lyons' yard is going well as is that of Jessica Harrington, whose The Truant will probably be suited by further in time but there are three entries from Ballydoyle. Armory, the mount of Donnacha, is by Galileo and a full brother to Bond Street, a winner over this trip, while the filly Lampetia is a half-sister to two winners over 7f and a mile. VICTORY MARCH cost 220,000gns and is a half-brother to three middle-distance winners so he's another likely to do better when getting a test of stamina, though he's by Zoffany so should have enough pace to make a winning start.
