First season sire Churchill opened his Irish account last weekend and is well represented here with three runners. UNCONQUERABLE appeared to take a nice step forward from his first run when runner-up at the Curragh and time may prove that Donnacha O'Brien's charge ran into a well above average sort in the shape of Point Lonsdale. He can put that experience to good use against a number of well-bred newcomers. Minister Of War represents the powerful Ballydoyle team and is a half-brother to two winners while Once Upon A River makes plenty of appeal on pedigree being a half-brother to nine winners including Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Highway To Heaven. Hadman has a similar profile to the selection and merits plenty of respect on his third to Dr Zempf in a winners' race at the Curragh.
