Won the Listed Tetrarch Stakes over 7f at the Curragh earlier in the season but well held over 1m at Killarney last month. Approach with caution from a yard who failed to find a winner from 13 runners at this festival 12 months ago.

Two wins from eight starts at similar level but has looked a little lacking in a couple of spins at Cork and Killarney in Listed company last month. Needs to find plenty of improvement.

Running well in defeat, shaping well on a number of occasions since April including when finishing second of 14 beaten 1¼L behind Goddess in a Gowran Park Listed contest last month. Requires plenty of respect.

Just about a career best effort when third of 10 in Listed company at Cork in April before finding the step up to Group 3 level a little too much at Chester in the Ormonde stakes in May. Market likely to be the best guide.

Lightly raced colt winner on both career starts to date at the Galway festival and over a similar trip at Tipperary last month. Step up in grade but likely to cope well enough.

Not disgraced in four seasonal starts this term but is still looking to add to sole career win at Leopardstown in October as a juvenile. Hard to recommend on current evidence and in first-time blinkers.

Has failed to add to his seasonal debut win at Naas in March, running well in defeat in a number of starts since at Listed and Group level. Should give a good account of himself.

First Reserve: Winner of one of her six career starts so far but will need to show significant improvement if she is to excel in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Lancaster House (7/4), Riven Light (3/1), Up Helly Aa (7/1), Winiata (8/1), Still Standing (10/1), Tipitena (10/1), Warnaq (12/1), Wargrave (14/1), Shelir (16/1), Insignia Of Rank (16/1), Rionach (16/1), Marshall Jennings (16/1), Drombeg Dream (20/1), Come September (33/1), Manjeer (33/1), On The Go Again (33/1), Memyselfandmoi (50/1)

Verdict

RIVEN LIGHT can bounce back from a difficult run in the Galway hurdle last month by landing the spoils in this competitive Listed contest. The winner of this contest in 2017 over C&D can get the better of the Aidan O'Brien-trained Lancaster House, unbeaten in two starts so far. Gowran Park second, Tipitena and the 103-rated, Up Helly Aa can give another good account of themselves here, while the Jessica Harrington-trained, Still Standing can go well at a price.
