Verdict

This was won by Dunguib in 2008. Willie Mullins' last three bumper runners have been beaten, two of them at long odds-on, so potential supporters of CLONDAW COURT may tread warily. However, he won a point-to-point at Largy by no less than 15l in April and has to be the selection to halt the rot. Mister Hotelier has been a short-priced favourite on his two latest starts and though beaten his overall form is strong and he looks certain to pick up a race before long. He's the obvious danger if the selection doesn't come up to scratch, with recent Glenbane point winner Benefit Biddy a place prospect.
