Verdict

It will be hard to ignore the chances of French-import FENTA DES OBEAUX under jockey Ruby Walsh on hurdling debut for trainer Willie Mullins. The three-year-old can be expected to be well schooled and can fight off the attentions of the J P McManus-owned Gardens Of Babylon and the Gigginstown House Stud newcomer Surin. Star Max on racecourse debut and potential improver, Way Back Home are worthy of consideration.
  1. Fenta Des Obeaux
