Verdict

Come To The Party has a fair amount of ability as he demonstrated with a facile success at Clonmel but whether he'll consent to produce it again is another matter as he's hardly consistent. Six Stone Ned had been running well before a promising handicap debut at Naas and looks well enough treated to make his presence felt Medicinal Compound gained his second victory from six starts over timber at Limerick last week and a 5lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run though the one to take from the race is A FINE YOUNG MAN. He was having his first start for Mick Hourigan and making his reappearance but ran really well and with that under his belt he's handed the vote. Masked Phantom has gone up 8lb for gaining his first success on his 18th start over the C&D earlier this month and a bigger threat may emerge in the shape of Back In A Tic, who looked in really good order when beating Dancing Tornado at Naas.
