Verdict
The Henry De Bromhead-trained ARVICO BLEU can land the spoils in the opener under jockey Rachael Blackmore. The eight-year-old is better than his comeback run suggested and can see off the attentions of Antey for trainer Willie Mullins, the mount of jockey Paul Townend. The ten-year-old stable stalwart Max Dynamite could improve on first start over fences at this venue last month and emerge as the biggest danger to the main protagonists. Mitchouka and Calciojack could hit the frame should any at the top of the market falter.
  1. Arvico Bleu
  2. Antey
  3. Max Dynamite
