Verdict

A DIFFERENT WORLD deserves credit for faring best of those who raced close to a good pace in a big field at Punchestown last time and is fancied to resume winning ways here. All Class would be a major threat if able to translate her latest winning chase form back to hurdles. Coole Arcade hasn't long been with Henry de Bromhead and also makes the shortlist.

  1. A DIFFERENT WORLD (IRE)
