Verdict

The newest race in the Festival programme and another quickly set to go to Willie Mullins, with ELIMAY making plenty of appeal after last month's comprehensive success at Naas from Shattered Love. Colreevy is another big contender in what is a very strong hand for the trainer, with Zambella arguably the pick of the few British challengers.
