Verdict
Trainer Aidan O'Brien boasts a 48% win and place strike rate with his first-time handicappers in the last 12 months. Flowering Peach and Il Paradiso both won in July on handicap debut, both ridden by jockey Wayne Lordan. SCHOLASTIC can get off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking getting the better of potential improver Yolo Aris, the Ger Lyons-trained Convincer and recent Naas runner-up The King Of Kells. The Willie McCreery-trained Amelia Jane could run well at a price dropping in trip.
