Verdict

Blue Ridge Lane, a winner at Dundalk in April, started favourite in a similar race to this at Sligo last month but never really got involved. Bobowen has found 2m4f too far on his last two starts having run well over this trip at Gowran in March. He finished completely tailed off on a return visit to Gowran and ran only marginally better here last time. Eightybarackstreet was always travelling easily at Kilbeggan last time but was easily outpointed by Raggletagglegypsy at the finish. That was over 2m3f so today's trip should be ideal and he looks the main threat to SUN FISHER, who was in touch and holding every chance when falling at the final flight in the race won by Blackwell Synergy at Tipperary last month.
