The Sportsman's Verdict
Gordon Elliott looks to have a strong hand here and the pick of his trio could be LETHAL STEPS, who transferred for 300,000 guineas in the summer, and the step up in trip to 2m4f could be the key to him building on his Naas second last month. Acronym is the choice of Jack Kennedy and that could be a big clue as to the pecking order of the rest of the Cullentra House runners, while Joseph O'Brien took this last season and has a leading chance once again with bumper winner Castle Oliver.
