Verdict

Barafundle can be given a chance dropped in class after a decent effort behind Trustan Times in Grade 3 company at this track last time but ELY BROWN is preferred. He also drops down a grade after landing a handicap at Aintree on his comeback and Charlie Longsdon's charge is taken to follow up. South Leinster ploughed through the mud to score at Kelso last month and makes more appeal than maiden hurdle winner Joseph Mercer and Makhzoon, who only won a seller at Hexham last time. Duke Of Monmouth didn't get far before coming a cropper at Newbury recently but won well enough at Warwick before that and may figure.
