Verdict

TIME TO GET UP won the 2021 Midlands National and has returned with excellent efforts in marathon handicaps in Britain. With few miles on the clock, he has all the qualities to win an Irish National and gets the vote. Gaillard du Mesnil got no luck at Cheltenham and surely has a big prize over fences in him. Full Time Score is another lightly-raced chaser who also ticks plenty of the right boxes. Velvet Elvis and Farclas, the pick of potentially 12 runners for Gordon Elliott, are also respected.
