Verdict

This looks a well-above average maiden and Aidan O'Brien holds a very strong hand with three runners headed by SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE who bumped into a potentially very high class colt of Kevin Prendergast's at Leopardstown last time out. O'Brien won this with subsequent 2000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior last year who was making his debut and although apparently third string on jockey bookings Japan could well be involved here first time up with this colt already in the market for next year's Derby. Norway, a brother to Derby winner Ruler Of The World completes a very strong trio for Ballydoyle and he ran with plenty of promise here on debut.
  1. Sydney Opera House
  2. Japan
  3. Norway
