Verdict

Winning bumper Champagne Agent hasn't done anywhere near as well as expected over hurdles and has been beaten five times. However, he's produced two good runs recently and will take some beating though BUSTY BROWN looks to have his measure. He finished less than a length behind him in a Cork bumper in April after having run really well on his previous start over timber so receiving 8lb here he can turn the tables and gain his first success. Killdunne has been narrowly beaten in his last three starts and is no forlorn hope as the likely strong pace should be in his favour while winning point-to-pointer Joe Reed has been finding the minimum trip too short and will be much better suited by today's distance.
