Prosperity Square was beaten a short-head at Kilbeggan but that was over 3m1f and this may prove too short. The Real Article is a smart novice who should go well but is up against some experienced campaigners including Ballyburke, who bounced right back to form at Galway last time when runner-up in a tough handicap. De Dodger is looking quite well treated but Toostrong has been out of form for some time so this can go to SAVE MY BLUSHES, a very good third behind Shot From The Hip at Killarney and reasonably treated on the balance of his form.
