Verdict

Aidan O'Brien scooped this race last year and he's got plenty hopes of doing so again with CABOT HILLS, second on debut and a very likely improver with Ryan Moore on top here. Stablemates Amhran Na Bhfiann and Persia are also noted newcomers alongside Gold Maze for a stable with excellent form in this sphere all season. Agitare was just thwarted late on in his debut at Leopardstown and is well worth considering while Degraves should build on a debut fourth here a fortnight ago.
