Winner on handicap debut last season and while there have been no wins since, he's run several creditable races in defeat including a narrow defeat at this venue (6f) last year; came on from his reappearance with a good fifth at Cork a fortnight ago (drawn wrong side) and the return to a shorter trip might help.

OR: 73

Form & Verdict
Got his head back in front when returned to turf at Navan in April; not as good from 6lb higher when stepped up to 7f here latest; dropped 1lb but this mark is probably on the high side for him; would like quick ground.

made all, ridden over 2f out, faced challenge inside final furlong, kept on well inside final 110yds (trainer said, regarding improved form, that his yard had been under a cloud for a very long time and his horses had disappointed. He advised that he had not trained a winner since this animal won at Down Royal twelve months ago. In his opinion his charge had lost his confidence but following a general return to form of his runners and the drop in the ratings of Geological from 78 on the day he won last year to 62 today were contributing factors to the improved performance)

Form & Verdict
Took advantage of his reduced mark when winning on AW at Dundalk (7f) in February and ran well in defeat next time before a lesser effort when last seen 70 days ago; must prove he's at least as good on turf to win this and needs to be fully tuned up after his short break.
