Off the mark for connections at the 14th time of asking when landing a 1m handicap here when last seen in June off a 5lb lower mark. Form of that race working out well and another bold show can be expected.

Lord Shanakill gelding took 15 starts to notch a first career win at Sligo in June. Well held since of revised mark and stepping up in trip. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Fair tenth when debuting for this stable in a 1m handicap at Killarney before further improvement was witnessed over C&D here last month. Has to be considered.

Finished behind Scorpion Black here in June before winning for the first time at the sixth attempt on a Musselburgh raid last month. Failed to back that success up at Catterick latest but merits respect despite difficult draw.

13-race Flat maiden on turf, last seen finishing 3L adrift of Scorpion Black here in June off a 1lb higher mark. Entitled to have designs on prize money in this contest.

Arcano gelding still looking for first breakthrough success in eight starts on turf. Solid and consistent running well in defeat in his last three starts and appears to be holding his form well. Can make a bold bid.

Finally off the mark at the 10th attempt for connections landing a handicap over C&D last month off a 4lb lower mark. Looks to be a progressive type and shortlisted here.

C&D winner of the Apprentice handicap at this meeting 12 months ago off a 3lb lower mark. Beaten in to second over a similar trip here in May and not one to put a line through just yet.

Ran well in defeat on heavy ground over C&D last September but the daughter of Street Boss is looking for a first Flat win on turf in eight starts. Well held on seasonal debut last year and appears easy to oppose.

Seasoned campaigner, miserly return of two wins from 44 Flat starts on turf. Needs to improve on four dismal efforts this term to play a role here.

Eight-race maiden on turf, sent off at big prices on both starts this season, running accordingly on each occasion and unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest.

Second Reserve: Frustrating sort who has failed to add to his sole win in 14 at Killarney two years ago. Refused to race here when last seen in May and one to avoid if getting a run.

Forecast

Pillmakers Hill (5/1), Mountain Fox (6/1), A Few Bob Short (6/1), Silver The Fixer (6/1), Coolbawn Magic (8/1), Iron Blue (9/1), Scorpion Black (10/1), Maunganui (12/1), Footstepsintime (12/1), Lappet (14/1), Lizard Point (14/1), No Way Jack (16/1), Fascinating Spirit (16/1), Feisty Katerina (20/1), Realtin Geal (25/1), Challow (33/1), Reverberation (33/1), Ojinjintka (33/1), Belle Free (50/1), Caronda (100/1)

Verdict

The Mark Fahey-trained, IRON BLUE can add to the sole win of her career here, building on a couple of encouraging runs at Fairyhouse and over C&D last month. The daughter of Raven's Pass can land the spoils from a positive draw at the expense of A Few Bob Short, neck conqueror of Iron Blue last month, course winner, Scorpion Black and the Gavin Cromwell-trained Lappat who can go well at a price.
