Forecast

Lope Y Fernandez (5/4), Pinatubo (3/1), Rose Of Kildare (8/1), Year Of The Tiger (10/1), Harpocrates (12/1), Mohican Heights (12/1), Highland Chief (14/1), Heaven Forfend (20/1), Dramatic Sands (25/1), Sun Power (33/1), Joker On Jack (33/1), Dark Kris (33/1), United Front (50/1), Clay Regazzoni (66/1), Zmile (66/1), Montanari (66/1), Ardenlee Star (80/1)

Verdict
Aidan O'Brien appears to hold the key to this (a winner of two of the last three renewals of this) and LOPE Y FERNANDEZ couldn't have done any more than win his Curragh maiden in the manner that he did on debut. The yard's runners often come on plenty for their first outing so this expensive purchase could be hard to beat. Stablemate Year Of The Tiger ran well behind Lil Grey who performed okay here on Friday (sixth) and he's another who to consider just making his second start. Mohican Heights and Highland Chief are both each-way players who should appreciate the step up in trip.
