Verdict

Friendship's dam has only produced one winner from eight offspring so far but Aidan O'Brien will have a good line on today's chief rivals as he's already beaten them with other of his inmates. Ruler Of France finished second to a Ballydoyle colt at Limerick on his debut but GLORY BOY had a subsequent winner in front when third at Leopardstown in April. The latter should improve for today's extra furlong and Dermot Weld's charge gets the vote to open his account.
