Equation Of Time scored at Listowel last month but an 8lb rise looked harsh and he's struggled subsequently, though he's better on Poltyrack. Maudlin Magdalen, who completed a hat-trick last August, has gradually been coming back to a winnable mark and Kevin Manning is a positive booking. The lightly-raced CRAFTED MASTERY had her first two starts on this track at the backend of last year and ran well. She beat subsequent winner Adeste Fideles at Gowran last month and her latest run should be ignored as she didn't take to soft ground - compensation awaits. Caged Lightning was well beaten in this a year ago but he's won on the track, though has a long absence to overcome. Caliso Bay's only success was on this track in May but she's now 18lb higher, but the veteran Amazing Star pops up every now and then and goes well for Seamie Heffernan.
