Verdict

Kevin Prendergast is striking while the ground remains fast with BROWN BUTTERFLY, who would have won more easily at Gowran last week but for failing to obtain a clear run. She's in such good heart at present that a follow-up looks on the cards with Gary Halpin's claim a major plus. Prospectorous had dropped to a very lenient mark by the time he was beaten a short-head at Dundalk in February and went one better there last month. He's only gone up 4lb so should get competitive again as should Zeftan though his victory at Limerick came on testing ground. He was narrowly beaten by Lonan at Dundalk in March and both enter the fray in good shape. Fionnuar pulled much too hard at Tipperary after a fine run behind Speed Dial at Gowran.
