Verdict
Trainer Aidan O'Brien has won five of the last eight renewals of this contest, hitting the frame with a further six runners. Four of the five winners last ran in a non-handicap race which brings the chances of U S S MICHIGAN in to play. The son of War Front shaped well on debut here to finish second of 10 beaten ½L 12 months ago. The colt can improve on his disappointing season debut run at this track earlier this month to see off the attentions of stablemate, Constantinople and the Dermot Weld potential improver Tinandali.
  1. U S S Michigan
  2. Constantinople
  3. Tinandali
