Le Vent D'Antan was a very impressive winner of a heavy ground bumper at Leopardstown on his debut a year ago then went to Cheltenham for the Champion Bumper where he started joint favourite. He didn't do as well there but has all the credentials to make a hurdler. DANEKING has already proved himself over timber having finished a close third to Western Boy and Kylestar at Leopardstown and the subsequent exploits of the first two suggest Willie Mullins' charge should be good enough for this. To Choose made a few too many mistakes when runner-up to Lieutenant Colonel in a huge field here on New Year's Day and with a better round should get involved. All Hell Let Loose looks best of the remainder.
