A disappointing turnout for a decent prize but that won't concern Joseph O'Brien, who has half the runners. Cosmic Horizon won a Roscommon maiden over this trip in September and though never in contention in a tough handicap at Naas last time ran much better than the finishing position indicates. Stable companion RAINBOW MOONSTONE, a winner at the latter venue in October, has looked as though an extended 5f is too short in her last two starts in Listed company and this should be more her grade and trip. Gloves Lynch won a Carlisle maiden in August before decent efforts in Listed company at Navan and Chantilly. She was well beaten in similar company on her reappearance at the Curragh but ran well for a long way and will be better for the outing. Klute won a Curragh maiden on his debut and has mainly raced in better company subsequently though was well beaten in a Naas handicap last time.
