Verdict

The Aidan O'Brien-trained, NUMEN can land the spoils on the fourth start of his career. The Galileo colt ran well in defeat when last seen in Listed company at Leopardstown last month and would not have to improve too much on handicap debut. The Dermot Weld-trained, Centroid, won for the second time in his career, landing a soft ground handicap at the Galway festival last month off a 6lb lower mark can emerge as the biggest danger with War Diary, Kings Vow and Presto all likely to give a good account.
