FormscanBy Mark Nunan - COLLABORATING returns to the scene of his first time out maiden victory last summer and can be another winner for in-form Joe Murphy. That was at a time when the stable was not firing on all cylinders and the Bated Breath gelding wasn’t able to make an impact in subsequent handicaps. He was far from disgraced, though, in some decent contests and he can take advantage of a declining mark in a first-time hood, having been too keen over further when fifth at Roscommon last time. Oneroi is also tried in the same headgear and has run well several times over a mile at Leopardstown this season, giving the impression that this step-up in trip would suit. Clan Jock didn’t stay 1m6f on handicap debut but can’t be ruled out having been dropped 3lb, while polytrack winner Duquesa Beach has been performing creditably back on turf and is entitled to be thereabouts off a feather-weight.
