Verdict

Investmentsuccess was bought by leading owner Barry Connell after landing a Fairyhouse bumper in 2014 but hasn't done as well as expected over hurdles and this may help him get back on track. BELONG returned after a very long absence to finish runner-up to the much more experienced Rock On Rosie here a fortnight ago. She was staying on strongly over that 1m2f so today's trip looks ideal and she looks the one to be on. Rocking The Blue showed the benefit of his opening run with a much better effort over the track and trip last month, though more will be required.
