Ruler Of The World (IRE)
||3||9-5||A P O'Brien||J P O'Brien||2/1|
Derby hero Ruler Of The World won this last year for Ballydoyle but ADJUSTED will need to make massive progress if he's to emulate his stablemate. He's bred for middle distances and appeared to find this trip just on the short side on his reappearance at Leopardstown though still produced a very fair run behind Fascinating Rock and can go one better. Marakoush started odds-on for that latter event but could only finish third, about one and-a-half lengths behind the runner-up. There doesn't look any particular reason for a reversal and he's another who should do better over further. Sinkal is out of a mare whose first two foals were winners and like Sundara hails from a yard going well. The latter is by Galileo out of and Irish 1000 Guineas winner and is definitely one to keep an eye on.
