Verdict

Cheltenham aside, the Goresbridge handler Mags Mullins rarely ventures across the Irish Sea with her runners (is 0-8 away from Cheltenham) so we should probably take the hint that DEBUCHET is unlikely to be too far away from following up his comfortable Fairyhouse win. Given a confident front-running ride by Danny Mullins on that occasion, his fencing was relatively solid throughout with today's similarly testing ground virtually guaranteed to prove favourable. His main danger is the JP McManus-owned Sully D'Oc AA who has the clear measure of The Flying Sofa on the basis of recent Newbury form.
