Verdict
The Joseph O'Brien-trained THE GAME OF LIFE can add to his solid winning starts over 1m as the Oasis Dream gelding steps up in trip here. The four-year-old has a couple wins and a place to his name here and can see off any potential danger from the likes of Major Reward for the in form yard of Ger Lyons and Yuften who has been in good form over the summer. Tennessee Wildcat under current leading apprentice Andrew Slattery appears capable of a bold bid.
