Verdict

The betting suggested BILLYBUSTER would come good at Tramore earlier this month and he duly obliged with the minimum of fuss. He's been raised 10lb but looks progressive enough to go in again. Top weight Alajan went very close at Fairyhouse a fortnight ago and should be in the mix with a similar effort though today's ground is a worry. Hold The Fire remains a shade high in the weights so Monahullan Prince makes more appeal having finished ahead of What About Harry when third at Punchestown last time.
