Verdict

Frankincense chased home a well-backed stablemate when second on his hurdling bow last month and will have sound claims of going one better with improvement to come but preference is for newcomer MOMENT IN HISTORY for Joseph O'Brien. He's a nicely-bred son of Galileo and finds a suitable chance here in the McManus hoops. Fellow jumping debutants Rips Dream and Ciao also take the eye.
