Verdict

Willie Mullins can't get a race over hurdles out of Champagne Agent, who has been tried at all kinds of distances. He's only started at this trip once and finished a close second but his lack of pace suggests he needs further. CURLEY BILL had anything but a smooth introduction to hurdles at Down Royal and may have been unfortunate not to have held off Third Opinion. He'll have come on for that experience and can go one better though Some Article, who was an impressive bumper winner here in April, will have improved from his hurdling debut at Navan. Way Up In The Air won a Cork bumper in November but got no further than the first on her hurdling bow there a month ago.
