Verdict
Willie Mullins won this last year with Uradel and he is a dab-hand in staying Flat handicaps domestically and in the UK. He has not one, not two but three very strong contenders here and can go better than his 1-2 last year with the 1-2-3 this time around. Closely matched on their recent clash at Bellewstown ROYAL ILLUSION and Mr Adjudicator both have A1 claims with each expected to improve plenty for the step back up to 2m. It could be notable that Patrick Mullins who often gets the pick in such races however rides Legal Spin who ran well after the layoff latest.
  1. Royal Illusion
  2. Mr Adjudicator
  3. Legal Spin
