I’m sweet on Shelaka for Dermot Weld. She chased home Norwalk Havoc at Gowran Park last time out and she won her maiden at Tipperary last year. A mark of 85 is fair enough.

Rogue Millennium, who was bought for £1.7m, makes her debut for Joseph O’Brien. She holds the rating advantage over her rivals and she doesn’t have a penalty so she’s hard to oppose.

 

The question is whether the good or bad Auguste Rodin will turn up – and I’m going with the good. I don’t see how you can oppose him because when he’s on song, he’s brilliant. Aidan O’Brien has undercooked a lot of his runners recently and that happened in his last run at Meydan in March. He can bounce back on Sunday.

I’m siding with Purple Lily in the Irish 1000 Guineas. Billy Lee is brilliant and he’s picked her over A Lilac Rolla. I’ll side with his decision even though A Lilac Rolla has the form with Opera Singer. She just got outstayed last time out at Navan but she can bounce back from that.

Ryan Moore has gone for Mundi but I was hoping he’d ride The Equator. Every time Wayne Lordan gave him a flick last time out at Leopardstown it looked like he was going to take off! I’ll side with him even though Ryan has gone elsewhere!

I’m with Harsh for Joseph O’Brien. He won at Punchestown in May and his run in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham earlier this year was also decent.
