MUNTASAF cost 140,000 euros as a yearling but had been sold for 10,000gns before making his belated debut on heavy ground at Listowel in September where he was just touched off. Andy Oliver can get a race out of him and this should be it. Treasure The Ridge was having his first start for almost a year when a good third here last month and will have come on for the outing while Energize has run his best races over a mile and found 1m3f too far at Dundalk last time. Massini's Trap hasn't progressed from a smart debut at Leopardstown in July but Zeftan has been narrowly beaten in two starts at Dundalk and looks a big threat.
