Verdict

Rambranlt'jac looked as though softer ground was needed when placed behind stablemate M C Muldoon at Galway so some rain would help. Quirt Evans didn't quite get the run of the race when chasing Macgiloney home at Galway but is penalised for two victories. Ballywilliam Boy was in good form on testing ground last winter but BENBULBEN BOY looks the one to beat. A winner at Limerick in May, he couldn't get close to the odds-on The Getaway Star on a return visit but was conceding a stone to the winner and the remainder were a long way behind. Botani has disappointed since landing a Cork handicap but stablemate Impervious was a very impressive winner of a maiden on that track last month. Tohellortoconnacht was engaged in the 1.40 here yesterday.
