BILLYBUSTER's second at Gowran last week, when Sweet Sylvia was behind, is easily the best recent form on offer. He races off the same mark here and should go one better. Do The Bookies returns from a break but was placed off this mark at Cork in March and should make his presence felt. Sea Of Erris has been difficult to train but did win at Wexford a couple of years ago off a 2lb higher mark so can't be ruled out while The Flying Doc continues to tumble down the weights and may have each-way claims. He's preferred to Downpatrick fourth Tynaghs Trooper of the remainder.
