Verdict

Unoccupied needs a thorough test of stamina which he had when finishing first past the post over 3m4f in the Ulster National at Downpatrick last month but unfortunately he impeded the runner-up and lost the race. To make matters worse he's been raised 6lb though it will still be a surprise if he's not thereabouts. Hidden Crack, who was over 20l back in fourth, looks held but BALLYSTEEN went to Thurles last month for only his fifth start over fences and came home a very easy winner. Connections can't be unhappy with a 3lb rise and a follow-up looks on the cards. Knocklong has yet to score over fences and looks a few pounds high but Betterthanalright ran his best race for a long time at Gowran last month and is at the right end of the weights.
