Verdict

The father and son combination of Willie and Patrick Mullins landed the spoils in this contest 12 months ago with Diamond Hill and can repeat the feat with the daughter of Sixties Icon BUILDMEUPBUTTERCUP. The five-year-old can overcome a negative draw in 18 to see off the attentions of Hasankey for the Dermot Weld yard who are two from seven in this contest in the last eight years and potential improver Formal Order for trainer Johnny Murtagh. Rocky Shores the mount of Jamie Codd and Run For Mary are also worthy of consideration.
  1. Buildmeupbuttercup
  2. Hasankey
  3. Formal Order
