In depth

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien had ten engaged at the early stage and relies on three. FULL MOON looked like winning at Naas when leading inside the final furlong but was caught close home. He'll know much more here and can take this though stable-companion Aircraft Carrier is a half-brother to several winners. Conclusion, the third of the Ballydoyle entries, didn't get the run of the race at Naas earlier this month and looks certain to make major improvement. Still Standing must have been showing plenty at home as he started favourite at Roscommon in August but supporters had their fingers burnt. Flavius has a superb pedigree being by War Front out of a Group 2 winner so he's one to note in the market.
