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.

Lightly raced distance winner who was last seen finishing fourth of five in a Listed contest at Newmarket in September. Big ask here.

10/1

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.

9/2

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.

6/4

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.

Betting

Forecast

The King (6/4), Twilight Payment (11/4), Sir Erec (9/2), On The Go Again (8/1), Fightfortheroses (10/1), Jaega (16/1), The Tartan Spartan (33/1)

Verdict
The top rated Godolphin-owned TWILIGHT PAYMENT can land the spoils here following some fine performances over the season including fourth of six beaten 4¾L behind Flag Of Honour in the 257K Irish St Leger. Sir Erec looks an exciting improving sort and can battle with the solid and consistent Jessica Harrington-trained The King for the minor honours.
  1. Twilight Payment
  2. Sir Erec
  3. The King
