rear of mid-division early, headway on outer to tracked leaders after 1f, 3rd halfway, progress to challenge entering straight and led 1 1/2f out, pushed out and kept on well inside final furlong
Aidan O'Brien has won four of the last six including the last two and is doubly represented. The superbly bred Credenza will need to step up on what she's shown to date though don't be surprised by a much better run. Her stable companion Fire Fly finished in front of her when caught close home by Operatic Export at Leopardstown and looks certain to make a bold bid though Jim Bolger trains the winner and his newcomer Freedom Come is one to keep an eye on. TARNAWA caught the eye with a fine debut over the trip at Galway where she stayed on nicely once getting the hang of the job and with that under her belt looks the one to beat.
