Verdict

Trainer Willie Mullins has saddled three of the last eight winners of this contest, two, Shaneshill and Gold Cup winner Al Boum Photo coming in the last four renewals. The handlers EASY GAME can take the prize here and get back to winning ways following a below par run in the Grade 1 Ballymore novices hurdle at the Cheltenham festival. The five-year-old gelding can see off the attentions of potential improver Zero Ten and last time out conqueror of Mister Blue Sky, Gallant John Joe.
