Verdict

BREAKING STORY appeals as one who could have more to offer for new trainer Joseph O'Brien so he gets the vote in this open affair. Star of Cashel arrives on the back of a couple of in-frame efforts and ought to be in the mix again. Soaring Monarch is also likely to have a say if ready to roll on his reappearance.

  1. BREAKING STORY (IRE)
  2. STAR OF CASHEL (IRE)
  3. SOARING MONARCH (IRE)
