Verdict

The obvious answer here is GETABIRD. Willie Mullins' five-year-old make his debut over obstacles here having been one of the top bumper horses in Britain and Ireland last season and having been the favourite for the Champion Bumper until missing the race through injury. It goes without saying that connections will see the son of Getaway's future at a much higher level than this (he is already prominent in the betting for all three Grade 1 novice hurdles at the Cheltenham Festival), and he should be able to defend his unbeaten record under rules here. If the selection fails to fire then Gun Digger and Impact Factor are the most obvious dangers.
