Verdict

Although disappointing in a number of bumpers for the yard, the Willie Mullins-trained THINK POSITIVE can get off the mark at the first time of asking over hurdles. The stable hold a 36% strike rate with their maiden hurdlers at this meeting in the last four years and the Jeremy gelding can see off any challenge in the shape of point-to-point winner, Alice O'Byrne, the solid and consistent Dunbar and potential improver, Roney.
