Verdict
Trainer Willie Mullins has saddled Sizing Tennessee in 2013 and Cilaos Emery three years ago to win this contest and his Stowaway gelding, BLACKBOW can add to that tally here. Beaten 4/9 favourite on return to action at Naas last month, the six-year-old can set the record straight at the expense of the Jessica Harrington-trained Sizing Pottsie who caught the eye over a similar trip on hurdling debut at Punchestown last month. Texard, not knocked about on first start over timber at Cork last month and the Gigginstown House Stud-owned Mr Lingo, both representing the Gordon Elliott yard should not be underestimated along with hurdling debutantes' Jessica's Bay and Captain Guinness.
