Noble Call has now gone over the ratings band for the race after a fine run at Clonmel but is still a maiden after 19 starts. Positive Vibes last ran on the Flat in September when scoring on good going at Clonmel but he's been in poor form over timber on testing ground. BLUE RIDGE LANE has been busy on Polytrack this year but reverted to Turf to run a fine race over 1m6f at Wexford where he was only caught in the closing stages. He can go one better though Bobskier looks a threat after staying on strongly over a shorter trip last time. Golden Clubs has yet to win a race but was heavily supported when last seen on the Flat at Dundalk and he wasn't beaten far.
