Sole victory over hurdles came for Willie Mullins on yielding ground at Fairyhouse in April 2016. Disappointing in two outings over fences since joining this yard and more needed upped markedly in trip on his return to hurdling.

Betting

Forecast

Just A Thought (11/4), Flashjack (4/1), Laval Noir (9/2), Sir Will (5/1), Definately Vinnie (13/2), Triopas (8/1), Minella Gathering (14/1), Fille Des Champs (20/1), Boher Lad (33/1), Falcons Fall (50/1), Master Of Verse (66/1)

Verdict

The Tom Lacey-trained TRIOPAS was chasing a fourth consecutive success when tasting defeat dropping in trip for his chasing debut last time out but he can register a fifth victory over hurdles with a greater emphasis on stamina today. The selection has won on soft ground in the past and having not been beaten far over an inadequate trip last time out he can get the better of Laval Noir who appeared to improve for the step up in trip when winning last time out while Flashjack, another to have won over staying trips in recent times can take third.
