Verdict

Lots of improvers in a potentially useful maiden, not least Aidan O'Brien's ETERNAL FLAME who shaped with bags of promise when fourth on his debut at Tipperary last autumn and is a brother to dual 1000 Guineas winner Winter no less. His stable companion Wordsworth is another highly promising colt who is sure to go well too, with Jessica Harrington's Theory of Music an eye-catching newcomer. .

  1. ETERNAL FLAME (IRE)
  2. WORDSWORTH (IRE)
  3. THEORY OF MUSIC (IRE)
