Verdict

Willie Mullins looks to have another strong team in this renewal however for once the English form may triumph as we select RESTLESS HARRY to provide a fairytale win for Robin Dickin, primarily at the main expense of Tell Massini and the Hurl. The selection ran away with a Grade Two here in January and connections are confident of a big run. The step up in trip is expected to bring about further improvement and he looks sure to run a big race from the front. On a form line through Reve De Sivola (franked the form with a second earlier in the week), he has a bit to find with Tell Massini. Tom George put him away after beating Kennel Hill here in December but that form hasn't really been franked and there is a nagging doubt that he may prefer softer ground. The Hurl has some solid Irish form to his name and is not to be ignored, along with Shinrock Paddy who has looked very progressive and his recent win looked to have plenty of substance to it. Watamu Bay has been winning on poor ground, Possol was expected to miss the meeting in preference to Aintree and it is a worry that plans have changed, Quel Esprit took a heavy fall here on Tuesday but would be interesting if taking part as this trip will suit, whilst Najaf has plenty to find on the form book. Chartreux is unbeaten but now faces much tougher company, Cappa Bleu won the Foxhunters' here last year, whilst Enterprise Park is another Willie Mullins runner who has solid form including a Grade Three win at Limerick in December. The Betchworth Kid and Fionnegas are not to be dismissed either, so with the shortlist building up to most of the field, the vote is reluctantly given to Restless Harry.
