Verdict

Boleybawn Cat had today's rivals Speed Dial, who is a reserve here, and Go Paddy Go, just behind when scoring at Wexford last month. There's nothing between them on that form and though it was a poor race this isn't much better so they must be considered. Brian The Warrior certainly did better behind MARSHIM last time but the winner won well enough and though subsequently beaten it was over a longer trip and he can return to winning ways. Short Grass hasn't run for a year but has some decent form and a check on the betting is advised.
