Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained STONES AND ROSES won on his second start over fences when landing a Cork beginners contest over 2m5f on soft ground last month and can continue his rich vein of form in this contest. The five-year-old will face stiff opposition from the Gordon Elliott-trained Three Is Company who was off the mark at the third time of asking in a Tramore beginners chase on heavy ground earlier this month. Last time out winner Niccolai can make her presence felt while Great Khan and Western Sea need to get back on track following set-backs recently.
  1. Stones And Roses
