Verdict

Reverting to hurdles didn't bother Baily Green at Killarney at the start of the month and he extended his winning sequence to four. That run started at Roscommon in May when he beat LAGANBANK by two-and-a-half lengths but Willie Mullins' charge is 6lb better off now and still in touch when falling behind Glibin in a better race over this C&D last month - he can get back to winning ways. Davy Russell lost his irons when Lord Ben blundered badly two out having just been headed at Tramore. He should be winning soon while Tabhachtach is heading in the right direction judged on his C&D win last month and can't be ignored. Imperial Shabra has managed just one win from 28 starts over fences, however, and looks well held by the likes of Baily Green on the form book.
