Verdict

Mcfabulous was very impressive last month at Newbury and comes here in flying form with sound claims but he was no match for Master Debonair earlier in the term at Cheltenham. Colin Tizzard's runner was too keen in a falsely run Champion Bumper last month and should have more to offer – he leads the British challenge. The presence of Ruby Walsh on Dewcup is eye-catching and his Thurles win was advertised by runner-up Blackhillsofdakota winning in Listed company at Limerick on Sunday. Unbeaten mare SANTA ROSS is the one they might all need to fear. She skipped Cheltenham in favour of this contest and looks a smart sort following her Grade 2 Leopardstown win.
  1. Santa Rossa
  2. Master Debonair
  3. Dewcup
