Verdict

AINSI VA LA VIE could be the next in line from the incredible Willie Mullins production line of top-class and prolific mares. She won all three bumpers and the form of her latest has already been franked by her stablemate and runner-up that day. If she jumps well she will take all the beating and for these connections they usually do. Awayinthewest arguably has the best hurdles form on offer so she should go well and Bluegrass Princess has enough ability to be involved if her jumping stands up.
