Verdict

BRAWLER won nicely at Fairyhouse last time to score for the first time over hurdles and he can defy his 8lb rise in the weights to follow that up as there could be much more to come from the gelding at this distance. Burlesque Queen continues to improve over hurdles as she showed when she was second over this C&D last time. The progressive mare may have to settle for the runner up spot once again, while R'evelyn Pleasure has struggled over fences recently but can be in the mix on his return to hurdles here.
  1. Brawler
  2. Burlesque Queen
  3. R'evelyn Pleasure
