Forecasts

Stormy Ireland (15/8), Farclas (5/2), Mr Adjudicator (10/3), Saglawy (8/1), Saldier (10/1), Mitchouka (20/1), Veneer Of Charm (25/1), Msassa (33/1), Eoline Jolie (50/1)

Verdict

FARCLAS can complete the Cheltenham-Punchestown double. He was impressive when coming away to win the Triumph and was nicely on top at the finish, and is taken to confirm the form with Mr Adjudicator. Saglawy doesn't look the best of the Mullins runners on paper but he was also quietly impressive when winning at Fairyhouse and could be the one to give the selection the most to do.
  1. Farclas
  2. Saglawy
  3. Mr Adjudicator
