BISHOP'S LANE, four times a winner between the flags, narrowly won handicaps at Tramore and Killarney before failing from his new mark at Ballinrobe. Ruby Walsh takes over here and the nine-year-old can return to winning ways. Best Of Bocelli hasn't won yet but the quicker the ground the better and he wasn't beaten far at Wexford last time. Stonesinmypocket probably found the ground too soft at Roscommon last time having been in good form previously but Judge Roy Bean is still looking high in the weights and has yet to lose his maiden tag over fences. Noel Meade's horses have been going well so Pat Garrett is one to keep an eye on as he makes his handicap debut.
