Timeform on Invincible Karma

Invincible Karma - 16:45 Roscommon

Invincible Karma sets a pretty high standard here, having been thought good enough to contest the Railway Stakes at the Curragh last time. He was far from disgraced, too, beaten four and three quarter lengths by a smart sort, and Invincible Karma is expected to take advantage of this drop back in class. The Corporal should have more to offer too and looks the biggest danger.

Engles Rock - 17:20 Roscommon

Engles Rock is one of the most exposed in this field, but she seemed to take a big step forward when second at Galway last time after seven weeks off, and she sets the standard on that effort. Dadoozdart is likely to be popular after winning on debut last time, but he has a bit to find with Engles Rock, and the filly is just preferred.

Handsome Maverick - 18:20 Roscommon

Handsome Maverick returned to form with blinkers applied when third in a big-field six-furlong handicap at the Curragh a fortnight ago. He's only been nudged up 1 lb for that and makes plenty of appeal back at this trip. Landline wasn't disgraced in the same handicap, albeit finishing only tenth, and may prove most troublesome. Simiyna is one to note in the betting now pitched into a handicap.
