Verdict

TENNIS CAP had punters tearing their hair out earlier this year having been a beaten short-priced favourite on four occasions. He'd made a tremendous debut for Willie Mullins when close up behind Monksland at Navan in December and if in anywhere near that kind of form must be the one to beat. Thunder And Roses looks the only logical threat and there's no doubt he has great potential. Runner-up in his only start between the flags, he has improved with each run in bumpers and gained a very impressive success at Naas last month. Spider Baby has shown a glimmer of ability and can make the frame with her allowances.
