No surprise that Aidan O’Brien has sent out the winner of this on numerous occasions and his newcomer BATTLE OF JERICHO has the usual clutch of fancy entries. He may prove good enough at the first time of asking while Jim Bolger introduces the Godolphin filly Dawn Delivers, a half-sister to a winner, and she is preferred to stablemate Rince Deireanach. The latter is one of several expected to improve from modest debut efforts along with Dowhatisay and War Hero.
