Verdict

CUT THE MUSTARD is taken to go one better than her course and distance effort last time out and she ought to benefit from the fitting of first-time headgear. Her trainer Willie Mullins has a strong hand in the race with Sapphire Lady expected to appreciate the step up in trip but Sinoria could spoil the party; the mare could hardly have been any more impressive when bolting up at Down Royal last time out.
  1. Cut The Mustard
