FormscanBy Donal Murphy - SIMPSON'S PARADOX is running out of chances at this stage, but first time blinkers might work the oracle on the well-bred Jessica Harrington-trained bay. A brother to Group 1 winners Alpha Centauri and Discoveries, he ran his best race to date when beaten three-parts-of-a-length into second over the course and distance in July. He again filled the runner-up spot on his next outing at Galway and had Lord Vader a place behind, with that one since successful at Cork. Highland Rahy was second in that Cork contest and with some solid form to his name, he is sure to have plenty of supporters. Joseph O'Brien saddles Princess Rabab and Royal Toast and they both warrant respect, while John Murphy's Helter Skelter is another leading hope with Colin Keane aboard. Minella Butterfly is out of a half-sister to Group 1 winner Amazing Maria and it'll be interesting to see how she fares on debut.
