Verdict

The Aiden O'Brien stable has won four out of the last six runnings of this contest and a slight preference in a competitive contest goes to SNOW. The filly ran well in defeat last time at Leopardstown and looks likely to be suited by this step up in trip given the way she raced that day. Search For A Song fitted with a hood for the first time has shown plenty of class in the past and will be much fitter than on her seasonal reappearance run at the Curragh last month and this represents a step back in class. Older contestants don't have a great record in this race but True Self is a tough cookie and should be ready to run a big race.
