Verdict

BILLYBO returned from a lengthy absence to win in a canter at Towcester last week. He has a penalty to carry here but that shouldn't make much difference in this grade and he'll be a short price to complete the double. Kilvergan Boy has won three times over fences but the handicapper has him exactly where he wants him and a place is probably the best he can hope for here again while Ballinhassig stopped very quickly having been prominent early at Plumpton last week. Might As Well ran well over C&D at the start of the summer, however, and could be the one for forecast-backers if a return to the course sparks a revival.
