Verdict

Joseph O'Brien has a big say here, with three runners, and his BALLYBROWNEY JACK earns the nod after two positive efforts in three starts over fences. He was runner-up last time at Sligo behind an experienced rival and looks the pick of the yard's three with a repeat of that effort. Stablemate Border Control, with the champion jockey booked, is not discounted after a fair start at Listowel over fences while Moonball showed more than enough on debut here (second) to merit consideration upped in journey.
  1. Ballybrowney Jack
  2. Moonball
  3. Border Control
