Verdict

BULGADEN's close seconds to Discoteca at Cork and Shamkhal at Killarney are the best pieces of form on view here and he appeared not to stay when sent over 2m4f at Clonmel. Back over the minimum trip he's handed another chance. Experimentalist has run well enough behind some decent performers though his lack of pace is a problem over this trip but he holds Face Value on their run at Sligo a couple of weeks ago. Both, however, have it all to do to reverse form with Westhaven, who showed improved form to finish runner-up that day and looks a threat to all with further progress likely. Mulleady can prove best of the remainder.
