Had the more fancied A Plus Tard and Duc Des Genievres behind in a faultless round of jumping to land the Grade 2 Fortria chase last month and can give give another good account of himself here.

711-7OR:
4/5

Winner of the Grade 1 novice hurdle at Punchestown last season with Melon 1L behind, the gelding won as he liked on return to action in the Grade 3 Poplar Square chase at Naas on soft/heavy ground over 2m last month. Strong race for trainer.

4/1

Worrying times for the Grade 1 winning novice chaser as his jumping lets him down more often than not. Sent off the 4/7f for this contest last year the gelding only got as far as the second. Hard to place any faith in his fencing.

Forecast

Cilaos Emery (4/5), Ballyoisin (2/1), Great Field (4/1), Us And Them (16/1)

Verdict

It's difficult to see past the Willie Mullins-trained CILAOS EMERY following on from a solid return to action when taking the Grade 3 Poplar Square Chase over 2m last month. The gelding can make it 11 wins in the race for his trainer since he saddled his last seven-year-old to win the race with Golden Silver in 2009. Ballyoisin beat the more fancied A Plus Tard and Duc Des Genievres in the Grade 2 Fortria last month and can give the selection the most to think about. Great Field, faller at the second in last years renewal when 4/7f should not be taken lightly.
