My bet is that both the winner Djakadam and runner-up Bright New Dawn will go on to win Grade 1 races this season.

The pair disputed the lead throughout but Bright New Dawn (33-pace adjusted 39) slowed the pace down dramatically from the third all the way to seven out, soon conceding a narrow lead to his rival in the process. They covered this part of the race in 151.9 seconds compared to the 146.7 in the Leopardstown Chase over the same trip later on the card.
