Verdict

Un Beau Roman has been beaten a long way on both starts for Willie Mullins over the minimum trip and connections will be hoping the extra half-mile brings about major improvement. It isn't the toughest of maidens and BLAZING SONNET deserves to get her head in front and this looks a good opportunity. She has been beaten for a turn of foot in her last four starts but the longer trip should help and her rider's claim is a plus. Noble Pageant has now gone 21 starts over hurdles without winning and was beaten a long way at Limerick last time while Tabac Brun is penalised for landing a bumper at Tramore, though he did run well over hurdles there on New Year's Eve. Hunting Party and Angelas Money have shown a glimmer of ability which may be enough to get them involved in a moderate contest.
