Verdict

GALACTIC GREY stepped up on debut when fourth of nine here over 7f in June and the son of Dark Angel is better than his last start at Leopardstown suggests as he makes his handicap debut here, his first race since a gelding operation. Distance winner at Killarney last month, Troop Commander, Borelli in first-time blinkers and the Aidan O'Brien-trained Lampetia can ensure the selection will not get it all his own way.
  1. Galactic Grey
