Plenty of deadwood in this and BUSALLA may well follow up last month's win at Listowel. He had Dancingwithangels three lengths behind on that occasion and can confirm running despite a 3lb higher mark. Toufan Express finished a bit closer at Ballinrobe last time and can get involved along with Black N Brew, if the latter can reproduce one of his better efforts on the Polytrack at Dundalk. Atlas Peak landed a double at Dundalk early in the year while Lily's Star and Elusive Express look best of the remainder.
