Minella Beau (4/1), Tesseract (5/1), Top Of The Charts (5/1), Mac N Cheese (6/1), Mindsmadeup (6/1), Treasure Chest (8/1), Ned Stark (8/1), Mine Now (12/1), Hash Brown (12/1), Ocean Glandore (16/1), Icantsay (20/1), Aranhill Chief (20/1), Supreme Vinnie (22/1), Mill Quest (25/1), Riviera Sun (25/1), Swingbridge (25/1), Cecil Corbett (28/1), Lilshane (33/1)

Verdict
Owner J P McManus is represented by four contenders here and his hat-trick seeking TREASURE CHEST can get the better of stablemate Tesseract in a competitive contest. The mount of J J Slevin can win his third chase start in two months at the expense of C&D winner Minella Beau for the Willie Mullins yard and Limerick runner-up Mindsmadeup.
