Verdict

Ballybreen keeps on defying the handicapper and is looking to make it four wins from his last four starts. Conditions are fine but the form of the yard os a bit patchy and he might not be one to be taking a short price about. Ruffling Feathers lurks at the foot of the handicap for a yard that have plenty of winners here and he could improve plenty for the cheekpieces today, so must be respected, but maybe this offers BIG MEADOW a chance to get his head back in front. He had no chance against an easy winner last time (who has won again since) but could take these from start to finish. Big Time Frank has thrown races away too many times to be trusted.
