Verdict

MR EVEREST is taken to land the opener for owner and trainer combination of John Breslin and Tony Martin who have enjoyed a fantastic week so far. The six-year-old the mount of Davy Russell finished down the field on the Flat earlier in the week but can get off the mark at the fourth time of asking over hurdles at the expense of Top Moon for the Joseph O'Brien yard and Brawler, who looks primed for a big run. The Willie Mullins-trained Estelle Ma Belle and bumper winner Exit Poll are worthy of further consideration.
  1. Mr Everest
  2. Top Moon
  3. Brawler
