Verdict

GALWAY LEGEND finally got off the mark at the 49th attempt when scoring comfortably at Downpatrick last week. Connections won't be too dismayed by a 5lbs rise and he looks capable of doubling his tally here. Winning point-to-pointer Buen Camino has talent but his overall form suggests he isn't one to rely on while O'Muircheartaigh, who was in very good form at this time a year ago, has generally failed to fire this year. Hunter-chaser Tullintain pulled up on his handicap debut at Fairyhouse and is on the same mark while Amaretto Son is 19lbs higher than when gaining his only victory over fences at Punchestown a year ago.
