Cenotaph could be a smart sprinter this campaign having been lightly raced and showing good pace in all of his races. He can build on his Dundalk victory though he's 14lb higher than when third in a Curragh handicap in June. Tribal Path was in brilliant form around this time a year ago and completed a four-timer. He's been going well from this sort of mark recently and should do so again. Athas An Bhean couldn't get to Gymkhana at last month's fixture and the winner has been beaten subsequently but Lily's Prince has been in excellent form and enhanced his already fine strike-rate when scoring at Dundalk last month. CLUB WEXFORD (NAP) makes a quick return to action after finishing second to Beechmount Whisper at Leopardstown on Wednesday. Jim Bolger's charge drops back a furlong but that shouldn't be a problem and he can race from the same mark so is taken to go one better.
