Magnolia Ridge and Sinour have both been alloted handicap marks and are closely matched on those figures though the latter came out best when they met at Dundalk back in April. Neither Cin Cin nor Land A Blow should cause the aforementioned pair too much trouble and they have more to fear from GREAT EXPLORER. He was unfancied for his comeback at Navan and never threatened in third but much better is expected from the 170,000 euros colt in this and he's preferred to stablemate Smoke Screen and Naas third Arch Pearl.
