FormscanBy Donal Murphy - MOON DE VEGA, Salt Lake City and Kerkiyra appear the three to focus on, with preference for the Paddy Twomey-trained former. A respectable eighth in the Epsom Oaks last season, she impressed on debut for current connections at Gowran last month. Fitted with cheekpieces and a tongue-strap for the first time at the Co Kilkenny venue, they remain in place now. Kerkiyra is given second preference, after finishing a good third on her return to action in a Group 3 at the Curragh. Successful on Irish Champions Weekend last season, the Johnny Murtagh-trained bay has finished no worse than third on her last eight starts. Salt Lake City was fifth in the Futurity Trophy Stakes when last seen at Doncaster in October, finishing ahead of subsequent Epsom Derby runner-up King Of Steel. Getting a weight allowance on account of his age, the Galileo colt could prove a class apart, but may just need the run.
