Verdict

Bawntameena lacks a finishing burst but that shouldn't be a problem in these conditions and he should be thereabouts. Sonny B almost beat Aerlite Supreme at Galway in October before a poor run when tackling much further at Limerick though the form of that earlier run hasn't worked out. Macnicholson has been plugging on at one pace and may need further, a remark that also applies to Moreece, whose best run was over 2m4f. SYNCHRONICITY came in for support at Cork despite facing the potentially useful Wicklow Brave and though he couldn't get to the latter he had the remainder well beaten off and this should provide compensation. Desertmore Stream would have to be considered if getting a run from his reserve spot.
