Verdict

BALLYVIC BORU (NAP) beat the useful Beyond The Clouds in a Musselburgh bumper around this time last year. He was well behind that rival over hurdles last month but will have needed the run, his first since scoring at Perth last July, and looks a cut above these rivals. Stay In Touch has been slow to come to hand over hurdles but should make the frame with winning chaser Captain Mowbray better over further. It's All About Me looks the pick of the remainder ahead of course and distance third Wor Verge.
