Age: 12|  Weight: 10-0  |  J: B M Coen |  T: M Halford|  OR: 65
28/1

Nothing of note in a couple of starts this season and races 16lb lower than his last winning mark. Looks opposable, but stable in red hot form.

9/1

Generally well held in a number of starts since winning a Sligo handicap off a 1lb lower mark in June. Strong place claims in this company.

Age: 6|  Weight: 9-7  |  J: A J Slattery |  T: Matthew J Smith|  OR: 58|  CD
11/2

C&D winner in the sole win of his career of a three-year-old handicap over three years ago off a 4lb higher mark. Not disgraced of late and hold solid place claims.

Age: 7|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: D E Hogan |  T: E O'Connell|  OR: 57
11/1

Won for the third time in his career from 14 starts in a Roscommon 1m4f handicap in August. Genuine sort and could go well again.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-6  |  J: A C Persse |  T: J P O'Brien|  OR: 57
5/1

Ran a career best when third of 19 in a Navan 1m2f handicap on good ground last month following three disappointing maiden appearances. Leading player and more improvement expected.

(13)
Age: 4|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: G P Halpin |  T: P J Flynn|  OR: 56
7/2

Comes here in fine form on a hat-trick of wins following starring roles at Tramore and Cork. Carries 11lb more than first win but likely to run well once again.

9
(14)
Age: 4|  Weight: 9-4  |  J: D M Redmond |  T: T G McCourt|  OR: 55
25/1

Suffered yet another heavy defeat on return to action in a Navan 1m2f handicap last month. Hard to fancy.

(15)
Age: 5|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: R Coakley |  T: M Flannery|  OR: 51
22/1

Now some 18lb lower than 1m1½f Bellewstown success last season but that due to poor form this season. Others preferred.

Age: 4|  Weight: 8-13  |  J: T P Madden |  T: C O'Brien|  OR: 50
4/1

Useful hurdler (rated 127) and showed promise in two starts on the Flat in May at up to 1m4½f before finishing a promising third of 18 beaten 2¼L at Tipperary when last seen in May. Market to be informative.

Age: 4|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: Christina Simpson |  T: A Oliver|  OR: 48
12/1

Promising third of 13 in a Sligo 1m2f handicap in June but has largely been well held in a series of below par efforts since May. Liable to find a couple stronger.

13
(2)
Age: 5|  Weight: 8-11  |  J: D W O'Connor |  T: J C McConnell|  OR: 48
12/1

Well held and never nearer in four starts since returning to action in March. Form doesn't warrant support here.

14
(7)
Age: 4|  Weight: 8-9  |  J: G Brouder |  T: P McCreery|  OR: 46
50/1

Six race maiden who is yet to hit the frame. Will need to raise overall performance to play a role here.

15
(16)
Age: 6|  Weight: 8-8  |  J: K J Leonard |  T: A McGuinness|  OR: 45
28/1

Hard to fancy 29-race maiden on the Flat and difficult to see any light at the end of the tunnel just yet.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-4  |  J: D E Sheehy |  T: T G McCourt|  OR: 46
33/1

Well beaten and no impression in a couple of handicap spins for the six-race maiden. Watching brief for now.

Verdict
With PAPAL PARADE finally getting the winning thread, the Papal Bull mare can land the spoils here seeing of the challenge of the solid and consistent, Mastermind, the hat-trick seeking Jake Peter and Joseph O'Brien's interesting Mastercraftsman gelding Shadow Seven. Any market move for Tony Martin's Acclamatio, should be monitored.
