Much of the focus in this race is likely to be on the Aidan O’Brien-trained Music Box as the daughter of Invincible Spirit and her connections have fallen foul of Rule 212 after making a very promising debut in a mile maiden at Dundalk last week. While she was banned for 42 days on that occasion, an appeal has been lodged which allows her to run in this and, while her draw is far from ideal, a bold bid should be forthcoming from her. A horse with an even wider draw that warrants respect is the Jessica Harrington-trained World War Tax, the son of Acclamation having made a promising debut at this track in October.
