Dual Homed ISP - BGP for failover - IP Block Routing questions.

I have a dual homed ISP Setup:

R1---> ISP1

R2----> ISP2

NO iBGP between them.

The Firewall behind R1 & R2 is setup for failover (Active/Standby). So R1 and R2 have HSRP on their LAN Interfaces - one HSRP Group fro Each ISP.

I have a PUBLIC IP Block, say, which is being advertized over BOTH R1 & R2, but R1 being a preferred route when both links are active (using AS-Prepend for that IP Block, on R2). Idea is, when R1-ISP1 link Fails, the IP block msut be reachable over R2-ISP2 Link (link with a longer AS-Path).

But, when R1-ISP1 link fails, the route for does NOT reconverge- The Upstream ISPs (confirmed via a looking glass site)- are still sending traffic over to ISP1, and it dies at R1-ISP1 Link.

Any other emthods how this can be acheived?
