Verdict

BALLY LONGFORD was beaten only a length when third over track and trip on his first start since November. Willie Mullins' charge will be fancied to open his account in this. Couleur France should give him something to think about as he's been placed in both starts to date and Cordelia Belle is not easily dismissed on her fourth at Punchestown in December. Carrig Rua Lady was last of five on her bumper debut but today's extra distance will suit.
