In depth

Verdict

Might Be Magic was having his first start since April when producing a battling performance to beat Kick Start here last month and a 6lb rise is unlikely to prevent another big run. After a long time struggling, BILLYBUSTER has suddenly found his feet and has been heavily supported when scoring twice in October. He's 7lb higher but there must be significant prospects of a hat-trick. Hurricane Sky, who completed a double on the Flat in the spring, makes his handicap debut over timber after a decent effort behind Pumbaa at Limerick. Fire Belt won here last month but couldn't handle the subsequent weight rise at Punchestown while the four-year-old Balrath Hope has a 7lb increase to contend with after a narrow victory at Gowran.
