Aidan O'Brien won this with Kingsbarns in 2012 and he went on to land the Racing Post Trophy. Birthplace is engaged at Doncaster and the son of Galileo out of a French Group 1 winner is an obvious contender, though it's his stablemate COOK ISLANDS who will be very difficult to beat. He made his debut in what looked a very strong maiden at the Curragh won by stable companion Hit It A Bomb, staying on powerfully in the closing stages over that 7f trip, so today's mile looks just what he needs to get off the mark. Yet another Ballydoyle entry, Ineffable, looks one for next season as he's closely related to the Flat and hurdles winner Beach Of Falesa. Al Mohalhal looks a very good yardstick as he ran a fine race when a close third over this trip at Galway then found 6f too short here a couple of weeks later. Propriano has an all-American pedigree and he's one to note in an interesting contest.
