Verdict

Kilmurry Kid ran well behind subsequent winner Foritsa at Wexford and is just 2lb higher than his only victory over regulation fences. Lethal Weapon has won three times on the Flat and the same number over hurdles but was having just his fifth outing over fences when a close third to Good Egg at Navan. He's an obvious threat to all while Bangonform has dropped down the ratings and is taking on much lesser opposition than normal. RORY'S BROTHER doesn't have a great deal to recommend him as he's still a maiden after 19 career starts but there's been a glimmer of hope on a couple of occasions and with his young rider claiming 7lb he's taken to spring a surprise in a moderate event. Popaflora was lucky to win at Tipperary before a poor subsequent effort at Galway.
