Verdict

This race looks to be all about two eyecathing French recruits in Willie Mullins' Sharjah, a winner of a conditions event on the Flat, and Noel Meade's DIS DONC who has a Grade 3 bumper win to his name. The market is likely to be all-informative but it may be safer to go with the expensively-recruited latter on the basis that he has proven form in testing conditions. English Pale and Great Tango look the most interesting of the remainder.
