Verdict

Willie Mullins dominates this race and can take it with the unbeaten SHANNING who was mentioned as a likely Graded performer last term so she surely must have a big chance off 10st 3lb and is the choice of Ruby Walsh. Mullins has others with chances, chief among them being Uradel who beat the top class hurdler Limini on the flat the other day in a manner suggesting this handicap mark is well within his compass. Art Of Security easily beat Bargy Lady when last seen and that mare has won since to frank the form.
  1. Shanning
  2. Uradel
