Verdict

The veteran Buck Breeze was a 20/1 chance when winning this a year ago and won't be those odds here despite not having won subsequently. He's just 2lb higher but this looks tougher than a year ago though one of his main rivals, Daytime Dreamer, appears better on quicker ground. Whatdreamsrmadeof is still a maiden after 15 starts and is on her highest ever mark but BILLYBUSTER is well treated and is handed the vote. He's another who wouldn't want any more rain but he ran easily his best race to date in a handicap at Wexford last month and a repeat would see him difficult to beat. Do The Bookies is still a maiden after a dozen starts over hurdles but is better handicapped than over fences and ran well enough at Clonmel last week to be considered.
