BURRENBRIDGE LODGE had over five lengths to spare when giving Mulleady 11lb at Listowel and should have no problems confirming the form and taking this. One Cool Shabra was well behind that day and, though he's since finished just in front of the selection in Captain Cee Bee's race at Tipperary last week, that was nowhere near the form the selection is capable of. Musawama made all for a facile victory in a Downpatrick maiden last time and shouldn't be dismissed while Gordon Elliott's recruit from France, Un Beau Matin, is interesting as he has a Listed victory to his credit.
