Nicely won a Group 3 at Leopardstown in June but has been a little below since in a Listed and then a Group 2 contests at The Curragh. Obvious chance on best of form but may have to give way to some more progressive types.

Has been running some fair races in big handicaps this season and showed his well being when 5fifth in a valuable handicap at Galway recently. Not sure to be suited by this slight step back in trip but should give a good account of himself as usual.

Generally consistent filly who wins her fair share of races but tends to be found out when stepping up in class. Likely to run her race but will probably find a couple of rivals too good.

Returned from a three-month lay off to run a fair race at Killarney in July over a mile. Has run well at this track in the past and is open to improvement. Certainly one to consider especially if the market speaks in his favour.

Won his maiden over course and distance in April before being given a lengthy break. Not disgraced on reappearance at Sligo last week but this is a tough ask for such an inexperienced gelding.

Front runner who will be aided by a tongue-tie for the first time here. Comfortably won a Limerick maiden before headed in the closing stages at Killarney last time out (both over 1m). Needs to improve to land this but has chances from the front.

Won handicap at Gowran and minor contest at Fairyhouse in June, but has struggled in tougher races since; best effort recently was last time out in Listed company at Galway when placed over this trip. Has place chances again.

Has never been disgraced at this level but has never really threatened to win a similar race including last time out in a Listed race at Galway. Others preferred as she has plenty to find in the form book.

Forecast

Flight Risk (13/8), Black Magic Woman (4/1), Chocolate Music (5/1), Marshall Jennings (8/1), Manjeer (10/1), Drombeg Dream (12/1), Rhydwyn (14/1), Quizical (14/1), Opening Verse (16/1)

Verdict

A tricky race with a slight preference given to the relatively lightly-raced MANJEER who showed his well being when running well after an absence at Killarney last time out and looks to be suited to this drop back in trip. The front-running Rhydwyn is a consistent sort and is another who could be suited by stepping back in trip especially if his jockey can dictate things from the front. Black Magic Woman was showing some return to form last time out at Galway and if building on that she has solid each-way claims.
