6/1

Zoffany colt. Cost 50,000gns as a yearling. Half-brother to three winners. Pleasing debut run last month when briefly losing his position over 1f out before staying on strongly in the closing stages to win by ½L. Open to plenty of improvement here.

Colt by Golden Horn out of a Galileo mare. Fifth of 16 beaten over 6L on debut in a maiden on yielding ground over C&D last month. Likely to improve but this looks a tough assignment.

Improved for a change in tactics when making virtually all in a Galway maiden over 7f when last seen in July beating Shekhem a neck. The runner-up has since won at Listowel. Looks sure to progress.

Has developed well over the season, culminating in a win at the fourth time of asking for connections when landing a Listowel 7f maiden on soft ground earlier this month. More progression expected.

Colt by Make Believe out of a Lawman mare. Well held and never nearer on debut when finishing ninth of 16 beaten 12L behind Sinawann over C&D last month on yielding ground. Tough ask.

Verdict

Since the turn of the century Aidan O'Brien has saddled no less than 14 winners of this contest including Japan in the race 12 months ago. The trainer has three representatives in the contest with the Galileo colt, INNISFREE appearing to be the pick of them. The youngster can build on his neck win over Shekhem at the Galway festival in July and land a sixth win in the race in nine years for his sire. Stablemate, Cormorant is likely to be better than his last run suggests, while the Ger Lyons-trained, Camorra looks an interesting prospect.
