Verdict

Lucky Pigeon has now had 16 starts over hurdles without winning and though she went close at Downpatrick last time a 4lb rise in the ratings won't help her cause. Springfield Grey hasn't had much experience but finds himself at the head of the weights after a couple of reasonable runs, the latest behind Couleur De La Loi, who runs in the previous race. KEY ACCOUNT likes the track and won very easily here last month. That was over 2m2f and he's no certainty to last out the trip but he likes fast ground which should enable him to overcome any stamina issues. Beeverstown Girl landed a point-to-point in May before staying on steadily over 2m4f at Cork so she can get into the action.
