Champagne Agent has been an expensive failure in most starts to date and was beaten a long way when last seen at Navan in December. Vincent Row has run two fair races on testing ground and today's much quicker conditions could bring about some improvement while Realt Den Chathair has performed well on good going so an absence since October shouldn't be a problem. BUSTY BROWN has only performed in testing conditions so how he handles this ground is the key to the race as his overall form, especially his latest effort behind Ample Appeal at Limerick, gives him the edge and hopefully the going will be in his favour. Mike Frazer's debut run behind Maller Tree at Bellewstown in August would be good enough for this but he almost pulled up on his only subsequent start and is best watched.
