Verdict

Tony Martin and Ruby Walsh are a formidable team so Galloping Gander has to be on the short-list as he reverts to hurdling on a 13lb lower mark than over fences. Fair Dilemma looked on the way back to form at Tramore last month though he's proved himself better on heavy ground in the past while Andalucia Lady has been running well enough and is just 5lb higher than her last victory. RORY'S BROTHER has never won a race but looked capable of landing a moderate handicap when placed twice at Tipperary in May. He's not been seen since but an absence is rarely a concern for one from his yard and this looks a good opportunity. Pink Coat has had a couple of recent runs on the level which should have put him straight for his return to hurdling.
