Verdict

McCoy's mount in this, Your Busy, is sure to be popular after winning at Galway last month. He was third on soft ground at Galway in the summer but only fourth off today's mark at Ffos Las in between. Nigel Twiston-Davies has won this twice in recent years but Pigeon Island wouldn't want the ground too testing and the grey has nothing in hand on FRUITY O'ROONEY on their run together at Ascot last season. Gary Moore's tough chaser got taken off his feet over a shorter trip at Fontwell on his reappearance but he's been dropped a couple of pounds since and this should be right up his street. Garleton stays well and has each-way claims but the classy Hey Big Spender may just need this and Jamsie Hall usually finds a way to get beat. Triggerman fell at Cartmel in May when last seen but did finish third in last season's Welsh National.
