Forecast

Tactical Move (2/1), Extreme Cacao (6/1), Ard Abhainn (13/2), Silver Sheen (8/1), Ugo Du Misselot (9/1), Gladiatorial (10/1), Battling Warrior (12/1), Rocconrockall (14/1), Belper Rose (16/1), Rocket Lad (20/1), Whispering Waters (25/1), Lough Sewdy (25/1), Siberian Star (50/1), Chief Of Police (50/1), Rum And Black (50/1), Corbo Queen (50/1), Snegurochka (66/1), Shes Some Doll (66/1), Kingsriver Diamond (66/1), Battledore (66/1), Wats Up Dock (66/1)

Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained TACTICAL MOVE finished behind a subsequent dual bumper winner in a point-to-point 12 months ago and can find the winners enclosure here on rules debut in the colours of Cheltenham Gold Cup hero, Al Boum Photo. The five-year-old can hold off the challenge of Ard Abhainn and Extreme Cacao who represent leading bumper connections, while Silver Sheen, Rocconrockall and Belper Rose are worthy of consideration from respected yards.
  1. Tactical Move
