St Peter's Square might do better now going handicapping, though Clear Intent has shown more promise so far and is equally unexposed. Irish Mint has only beaten one home so far in her three starts, however. KEYBOARD MELODY showed his turn wasn't far away when only beaten half-a-length by Santo Romano at Ballinrobe. The grey is a couple of pounds higher here but still looks the one to beat as Rathealy has disappointed in his last two starts, though wasn't beaten far off a higher mark at Leopardstown in June.
