Verdict

A tough one to call but Joseph O'Brien's horses are absolutely flying at the moment and with EAGLE SPIRIT typifying the passionate approach handed down through his family connections, the gelding can be fancied to make this a good test for the rest. Hyperdrive is also in great heart and merits serious consideration as the best alternative, while Veneer Of Charm and Slaney Street can scrap it out as the best of the rest.
  1. Eagle Spirit
  2. Hyperdrive
  3. Veneer Of Charm
