Beluckyagain started favourite on her reappearance at Kilbeggan last month but was beaten a long way and is best watched for now. Kevin Prendergast doesn't have too many bumper runners nowadays but BONOBO looks capable of scoring for the yard after his head defeat by Well Tuned at Roscommon and this could be his day. Honey Pound has been off for over a year but would have to be a major threat after his fine effort at Killarney while Theos Well has an even longer absence to overcome following his excellent run behind Union Dues on that track last July.
