FormscanBy Donal Murphy - The O'Brien clan dominate here, with Aidan likely to get the better of sons Joseph and Donnacha. The master of Ballydoyle saddles 800,000 pound yearling purchase The Euphrates and the once raced CHANTILLY. The former is out of a half-sister to Golan and is sure to come on plenty for this debut experience. Killian Hennessy claims a valuable 5lb on the selection, who stumbled from the stalls on his sole start at the Curragh last month. Probably held in a share of second at the time, the Galileo colt was hampered from the furlong pole and eventually finished sixth. Sure to have learned plenty at the Co Kildare venue, he can put his experience to good use now. Second in a barrier trial at Dundalk earlier this month, Flickering Halo should give a good account of himself, while the already gelded Naval Force and the Brendan Walsh-trained Phoenix Princess complete the line-up.
