Minella Indo (5/4), Voix Des Tiep (2/1), Where Eagles Dare (4/1), Last Minute Man (10/1), Small Farm (14/1), Atlantic Shore (33/1), Scorpion Boy (33/1), Ventura Boulevard (50/1), Buttevant Boy (66/1), Beeverstown Beauty (100/1), Mollyella (100/1), Amber And Black (100/1)

Verdict
Experience could be the key to the opener here with the Paul and Clare Rooney-owned LAST MINUTE MAN winning at the fourth time of asking over hurdles for trainer Gordon Elliott. Trainers in form this week, Willie Mullins, Noel Meade and Henry De Bromhead are represented by Voix Des Tiep, Where Eagles Dare and Minella Indo, all deserving consideration in this tight contest.
