Verdict

Edredon Bleu, War Of Attrition and Sizing Europe are among recent winners and this year's turnout looks well up to standard. Ruby Walsh has picked ARVIKA LIGEONNIERE over Mikael D'haguenet and though last year's triple Grade 1 winning novice has stronger opposition to face he is expected to take high rank among chasers this season, starting here. Despite having won 11 of his 31 starts, Mikael D'Haguenet has become extremely disappointing over fences but Paul Townend gets on well with him and he arrives with all the allowances possible. After looking a potential superstar when easily accounting for Joncol in the 2011 John Durkan, Rubi Light hasn't hit those kind of lights subsequently though he'll be better for a recent run behind Sizing Europe at Gowran. Foildubh has been hurdling in a bid to recapture the sort of form that saw him land a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse in April while Texas Jack and Toner D'Oudairies ran well behind Rolling Aces at Down Royal, though both have something to find.
