Verdict
Willie Mullins is responsible for eight of the 18 runners here, while trainer Gordon Elliott has declared six runners, with all 14 worthy of consideration in one way or another. GENERAL PRINCIPLE can rediscover his form that landed him Irish Grand National glory in April, with the ground and course form in the 10-year-old favour here. Pairofbrowneyes can go well at a price for the interesting combination of trainer Willie Mullins and jockey Barry Geraghty, while Mr Diablo and Sumos Novios are deserving of a second look.
  1. General Principle
  2. Pairofbrowneyes
  3. Mr Diablo
