Verdict

Liszt had been a bit unfortunate not to score over hurdles before finally losing his maiden tag at Limerick in November. A 6lb rise looks manageable and he should be in the mix. Your Busy is better known as a chaser these days and has done well in that sphere though he hasn't raced since March which could be a problem in a competitive event. Wise Oscar has won once in 31 career starts and connections won't be pleased with a 3lb rise for finishing 8l behind Bog Warrior over the C&D last time when Paradis De Thaix was behind. Playing won at Clonmel last month but couldn't defy a 9lb rise when only third to Miss Ellie at Thurles. BALLYFINBOY isn't the most consistent of performers though he did manage to beat subsequent winner Tarquinius at Navan in November and in the hope that he's in that kind of mood he's handed the vote to turn up at a decent price.
