A poor turnout for this new race though none of the quartet can be ruled out. Colour BLue is a smart and consistent performer but her victory at Killarney in May came over a mile and her latest effort in a strong handicap at the Curragh over 7f. Yulong Baoju acts on any going and is equally at home over this trip or 5f. He has to concede weight all round but will still take some beating. Calibrate landed a Gowran maiden in August but takes a massive drop in trip as that was over 1m1f and Galway is likely to be his target. BILDERBERG still looked very green on only her second start at Fairyhouse last month but could hardly have been more impressive. She has more to find against these but is well-regarded and can continue her upward trend by taking this.
