Verdict
Glen Of Aherlow was much-improved when making a winning start in handicaps over timber in the spring and Joseph O'Brien's charge commands plenty respect back from a break now going chasing. Bee A Beneficiary shaped well at Clonmel recently and is shortlisted with Muyam Spirit but the vote goes to NICCOLAI. She won over timber at Wexford in the spring and should have a future chasing given her point-to-point record. She's in excellent hands and Henry De Bromhead's horses are running well recently.
