Verdict
Trainer Michael O'Callaghan had his two-year-olds in good form at the start of the season before leveling out in the summer. The yard's juveniles have recently started to fire once again with a win and three places from five runners starting at under 10/1 this month. His colt NOW THE KING is sure to be popular in the market following a fine debut run at Naas over a similar trip earlier this month. The Jessica Harrington two-year-old juggernaut is holding its form well as we head into October with a 21% strike rate. Their colt, Aesop can emerge as the biggest danger, while Alatar and Galway second, Soineanta can compete for remaining prize money.
