Verdict

A difficult contest this with little hurdles form of note so those new to the code could dominate. A chance is taken on Jessica Harrington's EMILY MOON who showed plenty of potential in her first bumper and her likable jumps pedigree offers hope that she can build on that over obstacles. Willie Mullins newcomers are always to be respected, especially French imports so Fast Buck is expected to goo well as is Road To Dubai for Mullins' title rival Gordon Elliott.
