Verdict
Could be a battle royale with three Willie Mullins runners all in with a shout here. FARID the mount of J P McManus-nominated, Mark Walsh can improve on his third of 16 on debut in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle last month. The chances Fenta Des Obeaux will be highlighted in the market in the minutes leading up to the off while Andalusa will need to improve on a gloomy hurdling debut at Leopardstown last month. The Noel Meade-trained Pienta could take advantage if any of the main protagonists falter.
