11/2

Miserly return of one win from 19 starts, the win coming in a Navan 2m handicap last month off a 3lb lower mark. Well held on recent Royal Ascot run but entitled to go well here.

Won on sole start on the Flat landing a 1m4f contest at the Galway festival in August. Form a little in and out over hurdles since but better expected here back on the level.

Solid and consistent type on the Flat winning one of his four starts on turf while hitting the frame on a further couple of occasions. Recent efforts over hurdles have been below par and the gelding is hard to fancy at this stage in his career.

9/2

Winner of two of his seven starts on turf, the latest coming in a Roscommon 1m4f handicap in May off a 2lb lower mark. Repeat of recent efforts should see him in the hunt for more prize money.

Running well in defeat over similar trips in a number of starts since April. Second of eight on his latest start, the Galileo gelding appears in good form right now and merits plenty of respect.

Winner of two of his five starts on the Flat and represents a yard with a 36% win and place strike rate with their runners on the level at this meeting in the last four years.

Winner recently over hurdles at Down Royal, the gelding remains without a win in six starts on the Flat. Hits the frame regularly but liable to bump in to find a couple stronger.

Party Playboy (3/1), Take A Turn (7/2), Construct (9/2), Kerosin (11/2), Hot Beat (6/1), Diamond Hill (13/2), Venezia (13/2), Kuiper Belt (16/1), Waaheb (25/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott yard have a solid record with their Flat runners at this meeting in the last four years and the five-year-old, TAKE A TURN can make the most of his weight advantage to land the spoils here. The gelding can outsmart close rivals, Diamond Hill for the Willie Mullins yard, Hot Beat for last years winning stable and the Denis Hogan-trained, Kerosin who is better than his last run at Royal Ascot suggests.
