69-8OR: 83CD
8/1

Eight-time winner who is effective from 6f-1m and acts well on quick ground, but below form on both starts since a creditable third at Naas in June. Turned out quickly after finishing 5½L sixth of 10 to St Brelades Bay at the Curragh on Monday.

39-7OR: 89D
11/8

Won a heavy-ground 7f maiden at Roscommon last year, and back on the up when beating Betsey Trotter (runs 5:55) in minor event at Sligo last time. Favoured by race conditions, and ought to make another bold bid.

10/3

Gained compensation for luckless Curragh effort when winning at same track on penultimate outing, and again ran with credit when second to Scoil Naisiunta at Naas last time. Reliable, and should give another good account.

11/2

Rarely runs a poor race, and has hit the frame in handicaps at 7f/1m here on last two starts, finishing well when second to Dance Alone last time. No reason he won't give his running again.

9/2

Ended a run of placed efforts in maidens when winning 6f event at Naas last month by 2L from Chillala. Needs to improve if he's to follow up in this company, but that's not out of the question.

Forecast

Sirjack Thomas (11/8), Ice Cold In Alex (10/3), National Glory (9/2), Mr Ormsby (11/2), Mayaadeen (7/1), Geological (8/1)

Verdict

Quite a tight contest, and a chance can be given to the whole field, but the vote goes to Sligo winner SIRJACK THOMAS, who looks best treated by the conditions of the race, and he can score at the expense of Ice Cold In Alex and Mr Ormsby, who are both consistent types arriving here on the back of solid efforts in handicaps.
  1. Sirjack Thomas
  2. Ice Cold In Alex
  3. Mr Ormsby
