Verdict
Willie Mullins has two decent chances here. Farid has not lived up to expectations in his two hurdling starts thus far, though he should come good before long, so instead the nod goes to RUNRIZED. The Authorized gelding showed decent Flat form in France and should be primed for this first start over the jumps. Lignou is feared most after his improved showing at Punchestown on second look at hurdles. Konitho, Star Max and Lethal Steps all merit some consideration in an open start to the afternoon.
  1. Runrized
  2. Lignou
  3. Konitho
