Verdict

R'evelyn Pleasure, a dual winner over fences since December, went to Aintree with a realistic chance in the Grade 3 Red Rum Handicap but made far too many mistakes and pulled up. This should be more to his liking while Damut ran quite well at Limerick last time though is fully exposed having won one of 18 starts over fences. Uisce Beatha won here in January before a poor run in a much better race at Naas while Mill Quest is better over hurdles and Agent Boru is badly out of form, though the latter was only beaten narrowly by R'evelyn Pleasure here in January and is much better off at the weights. AINT DUNNE YET may have won here in February but for being impeded and unseating at the last before making all for a facile victory at Leopardstown. He's on the upgrade and can complete a double.
