Verdict

Willie Mullins' Balnaslow is owned by Gigginstown which means Davy Russell rides and Ruby Walsh is free to take the mount on VICTRIX GALE, who has been raised a massive 13lb for her victory at Galway. She was always travelling very easily that day and though this is tougher can follow-up. Tony Martin also runs Corrick Bridge, who just failed to catch Courtncatcher at Bellewstown last month and should go well with a lowly weight. Supreme Carolina also represents Willie Mullins and it will be interesting to see how she performs over this trip having shown plenty of promise over shorter. Baresi has done best on testing ground so conditions will be in his favour while Harangue found 2m2f on fast ground against him after completing a hat-trick over much further.
