Verdict

This is invariably won by a top-class performer including ZAIDPOUR a year ago and he can complete the double. Willie Mullins has been trying him over further in his recent races and he beat Monksland over 2m4f in the Grade 1 Hatton's Grace in December but had enough pace to finish runner-up to Hurricane Fly in Punchestown's Champion Hurdle in April. Stablemate So Young has also been racing over further and the pair of them will ensure there's no hanging around. Hisaabaat was an outstanding juvenile with two Grade 1's to his credit but he hasn't progressed as expected while Rory O'Moore hasn't proved himself at this level. Arnaud and Missunited get plenty of allowances but both will need to find major improvement against genuine Grade 1 performers.
