Martin Molony Stakes (Listed)
Class 1 | 1m 4f 110y | Soft (Soft to Heavy in places) | 7 Runners | Turf
Off time: 14:46 | Winning time: 2m 56.44s
On the go for a while and the toils of a busy season may be taking its toll. Liable to find one or two quicker here.
Leading player based on a couple of solid runs over the summer in Group and Listed company. Top rated in the contest and commands respect.
Lightly raced distance winner who was last seen finishing fourth of five in a Listed contest at Newmarket in September. Big ask here.
Winner of a Naas maiden earlier this month getting off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking following a promising run at Gowran Park earlier. Long way behind stablemate on ratings.
Won his maiden at the Curragh in August beating 13 rivals ½L on good to yielding ground over 1m2f. Capable of giving the favourite plenty to think about.
Hasn't won since winning his maiden at Gowran on second start and disappointed in a couple of Group 3's at Leopardstown recently. Second top-rated in the contest and must go close.
Struggling of late and was well held over this trip in the Group 3 Munster Oaks in June. First-time blinkers may assist.
