In depth

Verdict

Orgilgo Bay is clearly the form pick on his second to Battle Of Marengo in the Beresford Stakes last year. He was very highly tried in his first season but ran a shocker on his reappearance over 1m4f at Gowran and is probably best watched here. Limerick second Durand will almost certainly improve for the step up in distance but PROTESTANT is even more interesting after his debut third behind Dante third Indian Chief at Leopardstown and he gets the nod ahead of stablemate and debutant Weather Watch.
