Verdict

Mystic Princess got off the mark at Sligo last month but this is a stiffer task off a 9lb higher mark. Ballyfinboy won over fences at Tramore two runs ago before finding the competition too hot at Roscommon but he's only 1-7 over hurdles, though that's still better than some of these. Broughtons Bandit is very difficult to win with and has a 7lb claimer on board while stablemate Canova has been a disappointment so far. MAGNETIC FORCE (NAP) was well behind Ballyfinboy at Tramore but may well turn the tables back over hurdles as he's something of a course specialist and is looking well treated at present.
