Verdict

Willie Mullins has won this three times in seven years and this looks just a question of whether PRIDE OFTHE PARISH will be good enough to see off Road To Riches. Both have been very impressive in bumpers, the former when slamming his rivals by 12l at Limerick last December, and the latter when easily landing the odds at Naas a month ago following an earlier victory between the flags. They look a pair of classy recruits to hurdling and should win plenty more races whatever today's outcome. Los Amigos ran a shocker when fancied for a bumper here in April but had looked a potentially nice type earlier while Lastofthepilots can put his hurdling experience to good use and challenge for a place.
