Joseph O'Brien has another go at getting a race out of ROYAL COURT, who has been racing from 5f to a mile and rarely beaten far. This is the lowest grade event he's been involved in so this could be his day. Small Town Boy ran very well over this trip on soft ground at Limerick, when he had Wartime Hero behind, before finding 1m2f beyond him at Sligo so he should get competitive but Sevenaday didn't run well when dropped into this company at Fairyhouse. Wexford Land is one of the few here with scope and was staying on behind stable companion Western Dawn over 6f at Wexford so looks the main threat as Cliara has shown nothing this season after a narrow defeat in a big field of maidens at Leopardstown in October.
