Verdict

BISHOP'S LANE appeared to have a bit in the locker when beating good yardstick Sherika at Killarney last month and can complete the hat-trick. Muzak is in good form, however, and may still have a bit of scope over fences. He looks a better bet than Kilbeggan third Scavenger Lad, who looks too high in the weights, while Urban Gale looked one-paced at the same track last time. Bruff stayed on nicely at Galway on his latest start and Western Star is also worth a second look after finishing second at Listowel last week, though is struggling to get his head in front. Weslife won a beginners' chase at 50/1 12 days ago but whether he'll reproduce that form off top weight here must be questionable and Talab is still a maiden over fences.
