Einsteins Folly has improved with racing and there was plenty to like about his defeat of Ballydoyle's odds-on Count Of Limonade on heavy ground here last month. He had Hard Core Debt back in sixth that day and the latter has since come out and won easily at Sligo so there shouldn't be much between them here. Both are penalised, however, and come up against a trio of superbly-bred newcomers. Dermot Weld's Ella's Kitten is a full brother to a winning miler in the USA but will probably do better when getting a stiffer test of stamina. The Ballydoyle pair FLYING THE FLAG and The Vatican are both by Galileo out of classy mares and it's the former who just gets the vote as his dam, Halfway To Heaven, was an outstanding triple Group 1 winner.
