Verdict

An intriguing race in prospect here. Aidan O'Brien has won three of the last five and Rain Goddess boasts super credentials after twice finishing second at the top level last month. She's been to America since however and that journey is a source of worry give the proximity to this race. There is a strong British challenge with Roger Varian's Dawn Of Hope a contender and Intimation expected to go well tackling this trip for the first time for the in-form Sir Michael Stoute team but this might remain in Ireland with MAKING LIGHT. She showed up well behind Alluringly last time at Gowran, beating a few of these, and with her trainer now flying again, can collect this prize.
  1. Making Light
  2. Intimation
  3. Dawn Of Hope
