An extremely tight handicap and no favourite has won in the past eight renewals. The four-year-old Burrenbridge Lodge has been racing in strong company but has plenty of weight and it's difficult to see him conceding 2lb to the in-form and progressive HE'S OUR MAN. Ross O'Sullivan's charge has improved out of all recognition lately and followed his Limerick maiden success by making a winning handicap debut at Punchestown. He's up 5lb for that but appeared to win with a bit in hand and though Golanbrook, who finished second, can close the gap he's unlikely to reverse the form. Bob Lingo is on a 19lb lower mark than over fences but didn't run very well at Killarney last time and a better chance is held by Motaraqeb, who was having just his second start since 2009 when a fine second to Hevelius at Clonmel a couple of weeks ago. Whodoyouthink ended a long losing spell with a very easy victory over fences at Punchestown and he's well handicapped on his return to hurdling.
