Beaten favourite in a Cork handicap over 1m2f earlier this month when third of 14 beaten 1L on soft to heavy ground. Up in trip but will go well on the ground.

Lightly-raced Nathaniel gelding, some promise shown in trio of maidens last term and possibly needed the run when finishing sixth of 16 beaten over 8L last month. Needs to show significant improvement in this company on handicap debut.

Saddle slipped on return to the track following a year off on stable debut at Naas last month behind the gallant Curley Bill before landing a Clonmel handicap by a head earlier this month. Will need to improve again.

Course winner over 7½f on racecourse debut back in April 2015. Noe races off a 6lb lower mark than his last winning mark but will need to improve to figure in this contest.

94-rated hurdler who has won just one of his 13 career Flat start and has been unable to halt alarming slide in form on the level. Looks a tall order on Flat form shown.

Just one win from 19 starts on the level on the turf and Flat losing run now extends to 21. Unlikely to play a part in the finish here.

Eight-race maiden on the Flat and well beaten and no impression last month in a Navan handicap over 1m5f. Others hold stronger profiles.

Modest 108-rated hurdler who is without a win from 13 starts on the Flat and appears to be regressing since his initial rating of 74 a while back.

Sole success came at Sligo in June 2016 but showed plenty of promise on return to the track finishing second of 16 beaten 2l at Limerick last month headed in the final 100 yards. Big player.

127-rated improving hurdler who is without a win in six starts on the level but showed plenty of promise in a Cork handicap earlier this month when finishing fourth of 14 over 1m2f. Should appreciate the step up in trip.

Not a lot to shout about in eight dismal career starts for Charles O'Brien and nothing of any note on stable debut for new connections at Clonmel earlier this month. Another struggle looks on the cards.

Forecast

Song Of The Sky (9/4), Mastermind (3/1), Northern Sky (8/1), Creative Talent (10/1), Emily Square (11/1), Last Garrison (12/1), Capital Fund (14/1), Shamar (16/1), Trump Card (16/1), King Christophe (20/1), Bobby Jean (20/1), Misty Millie (20/1), Stadius (20/1), Dixie Highway (25/1), Time For Mabel (25/1), Clementina (25/1), Get Out Of Jail (25/1), Sindirana Queen (25/1), Shoofly (66/1), Balaclava (66/1)

Verdict

MASTERMIND could take advantage of the early pace set by either of King Christophe, Shoofly or Stadius who are know to like to get on with things from the front. The four-year-old showed plenty of promise in a Cork handicap earlier this month when finishing fourth of 14 over 1m2f and should appreciate the step up in trip. Dixie Highway could reclaim his form over this trip and along with last time out eye-catcher Northern Sky can hit the frame in the closing contest.
  1. Mastermind
  2. Dixie Highway
  3. Northern Sky
