Verdict

Willie Mullins won this last year with Felix Yonger and RAISE HELL will be a short-price for a repeat. A moderate point-to-pointer and bumper, he made a promising start over timber behind his odds-on stablemate Touch Of Eden at Thurles and this longer trip will suit. He can go one better with only Back Off Mate showing a similar level of form over timber. He was always prominent at Limerick last month and led at the second last so should have enough pace to test the selection. Bottle Rattler won a bumper here on his debut but has been beaten a long way on both starts over timber while the remainder have looked moderate in the extreme.
