GLEN SHIEL is the Group 1 winner in the field and he won at Ascot last year when Hollie Doyle rode him. That was on soft ground and he sets the standard in this one at Curragh, even though he’s seven years old.
Can anyone else get up to the standard he sets? I’m not so sure. He’s a genuine Group 1 six-furlong sprinter, but I’m not sure the rest of them are.
I do like the look of Van Gogh. When you think you can get La Barrosa at a decent price and he finished behind him in France, having a go on Van Gogh makes sense. Aiden O’Brien’s runners have ran well recently too.
I was a huge BATTLEGROUND fan and I like that he’s got form when there’s a cut in the ground. I’d still be willing to chance him, considering he was able to do it as a three year old. He won at Ascot on his second start and if the ground is on his side, he’s worth backing.

If the weather forecast is correct and it’s soft ground, PRETTY GORGEOUS will win. She loves soft ground. Pretty Gorgeous and Shale went against each other four times last season, twice on good ground and twice on soft, and Pretty Gorgeous came out on top both times when the ground suited her.
