Verdict

Bally Longford was going well when falling on his debut between the flags than ran well at Rathmorrisey. He's joined Willie Mullins and looks a nice prospect so is expected to be in the shake-up though CURLEY BILL looks the one to be on. Noel Meade's charge has been unfortunate to bump into a couple of very useful recruits in his two latest starts and will be unlucky if he meets another here. He holds Bell Weir on the first of those runs but Balboni was only caught in the shadow of the post by Bottle Rattler over slightly further here in September and the winner can give the form a boost earlier in the day.
