Verdict

Official figures point to the obvious chance of BUSTY BROWN and this drop in grade can hopefully bring about a revival. A Grade 2 winner in 2012, he missed the whole of last year and hasn't exactly sparkled since his return to action though he's been racing in very much better class than this. Beluckyagain is next best in and she has more scope than these rivals though she didn't run well at Punchestown last time after finishing runner-up to stablemate Adriana Des Mottes in a Fairyhouse Grade 1. Gimli's Rock has won ten races in his time though not since 2012 and The Bishop Looney has gone even longer without a victory and is better in over fences. Carrigeen Lechuga has only run once over hurdles, when runner-up to Our Katie at Limerick in March, and is likely to want a stiffer test of stamina.
