Aidan O'Brien dominates this and GALILEAN, whose dam has produced winners with all 10 foals to race so far, should keep up the family tradition after a promising start at Naas where he looked in need of this sort of trip. Stable companion Tang Dynasty has looked quite moderate in similar company and may have to wait for a handicap while Onthelist was well beaten in a nursery on similar ground at Listowel. Blinkers are applied to Simafar, who was staying on over 7f at Listowel, while Three Jacks did well to finish so close at the Curragh as he had been under pressure for most of the race.
