Busted Tycoon makes her handicap debut after landing a Tramore maiden and she looks certain to make further progress and get into the mix. Faanan Aldaar is also a four-year-old and has some strong form though she's still a maiden and this looks tough as TWIN PLAN looks set to continue her winning ways. Jimmy Lambe's mare continues to progress and though she's shot up the weights she's only 2lb higher than when completing her hat-trick at Ayr. Chiltern Hills attempted to make all at Cork last time but was caught close home by Sitcom and could be a few pounds high in the weights. Meitheamh looks best of the remainder.
