The potential improver JULIET ROSE
is hard to ignore for trainer-Joseph O'Brien. The three year-old can build on a solid effort over C&D last month when finishing second of nine. The Dermot Weld pair Unanswered
and the Aga Khan-owned Haparanda
can emerge as the biggest dangers in this contest, while Dutch Admiral
could be of interest in this in this contest stepping up in trip. The Charles O'Brien-trained Figurehead
is likely to improve on his run over 7f on debut in November, while the Camelot gelding Presgrave
for trainer Joseph O'Brien can give a good account if starting better than on debut over C&D last month.
