Verdict

Willie Mullins had five of the original 13 entries and relies on TARLA and Upsie with the former taken to come out on top and land this for the second year in succession. She had today's rival Rebel Fitz 5l behind a year ago when Won In The Dark pulled up. Although beaten when long odds-on for a Grade 1 at Punchestown subsequently, she's been chasing and made too many mistakes last time so reverting to hurdles looks the right option. Upsie has done very well and her victory over stablemate Urticaire at Punchestown last month showed she is on the upgrade. Rebel Fitz has also been chasing with great success having won five of his seven starts so he's an obvious threat but the remainder will need to find some improvement to get involved.
