Mark Me Up may have found the minimum trip at Listowel too short after a very good run over this trip at Cork and will love the conditions. With his young rider's claim taken into account he's well in and should get into the mix though RAWNAQ looks the one to be on. He followed placed efforts at Galway and Kilbeggan with a comfortable victory at Bellewstown and two subsequent runs on the Flat suggest he's probably capable of better. Neighbourly, a winner at Kilbeggan in August when Lillymile was behind, ran well behind Ordinary Man at Tramore last week and is on the same mark but Jeunopse is still a maiden over timber and hasn't been seen since March.
