A couple of the market principals have some question marks lingering above their heads and the four-year-old arrives here in hot-form, which culminated in a Listed success at Gowran Park last time out.

This looks just about her optimum trip and she’s taken to pick up a fourth win of the year.

NB: CARRYTHEONE | 6:45pm Paddy Power Irish Cambridgeshire (Premier Handicap)

Ebor winning pair John Murtagh and Ben Coen partner up once again and the four-year-old gelding representing the local yard makes great appeal on his seasonal debut, despite the hefty weight.

Can Johnny Murtagh land another sizeable handicap at the Curragh?

He has come on leaps and bounds from his Naas debut and bar his bizarre running-out at this track back in August, has either won or finished second on his other three starts at this course.

His close form with Aidan O’Brien’s Delphi, who was rated 108, means he could still be a few pounds ahead of his current mark.
