The veteran Mooretown Boy was on the mark of a selling plater when scoring here in September and could just need this after a long break. Conor O'Dwyer wastes no time bringing COLLEGE BOY out again after his convincing victory at Cork on Friday. That was only his fifth race on the Flat and he's likely to be hit by more than a 5lb rise so gets the vote under a penalty. Maundy Money has won seven times on the Flat though not since 2011 when he scored from a 17lb higher mark. He has to be of interest while Benalex Park is in very good form and will appreciate the ground better than most. Smoke Charger was a bit disappointing at the Curragh last time but may do better now dropping down in trip.
