Aidan O'Brien won the inaugural running a year ago and has two entries here. Snow chased the leaders before fading at Cork and will have learnt plenty but PEACEFUL looks a more likely winner. A sister to three winners, she never got into contention over 7f at Leopardstown but stayed on nicely once getting the hang of the job and will know much more here. St Clerans, a E170,000 daughter of Golden Horn, finished virtually upsides in that event and is another who will have come on markedly for the run. Zoom Zoom Babe looks as though she'll do better next season over middle-distances but Legal Thriller is another who will have come on for her opening run on heavy going at the Curragh. Lilli Milena, by Dansili out of a Galileo mare, is one to note for the future.
