Florimund returned to form with a decent run behind Stop The Clock at Sligo on Wednesday. Push The Button beat a big field at Fairyhouse last month before a good third to the promoted The Blarney Rose at Limerick. There's little between the pair on the revised rems but the winner may just be good enough to confirm the form. Our Girl Lucy has been chasing with some success and though not seen since January she's well treated over hurdles and is one to note. Slivegullion Girl would have a chance if getting a run from her reserve spot but ROBBIE MCMAHON, who wasn't far behind her at LImerick on Sunday, will be better suited by this longer trip and is handed the vote in a very trappy contest.
