Verdict
Willie Mullins has a good record in this and has a strong hand with three runners. Voix Des Tiep has the best form but his attitude has been questioned and Paul Townend has deserted him in favour of QUEENS BOULEVARD. The mare looked useful in winning two bumpers on testing ground but three runs since on a sounder surface have been disappointing. Conditions will be more favourable here and she has most to fear from The Gunner Murphy who made a good impression last time, whilst also looking ready for a much longer trip than his. Well Set Up has solid bumper form and looks interesting on her hurdling debut.
