Verdict

MORDANMIJOBSWORTH beat Target Acquired by a length-and-a-quarter at Naas last week and the runner-up ran well again at the Curragh on Sunday so we'll stick with Ger Lyons' three-year-old as Colin Keane's claim partly offsets his 9lb weight rise. Attire is now tried in blinkers after a string of placed efforts and has gone back up in the weights since finishing second at Limerick. Right Divine and Slim Chance both showed improvement last time and could play a part while Blackthorn Stick is only a pound higher than when runner-up at Limerick last month having finished third behind Target Acquired at Cork previously, though he finished last when Jumbo Steps beat Right Divine at Fairyhouse. Gary Carroll's mount has every chance of following up here on that line of form.
