Verdict

Mallowney has progressed from handicaps and landed a Listed contest in impressive style at Naas last time. Sizing Rio had looked potentially top-notch before disappointing behind Jezki in the Future Champions at Leopardstown but this could provide Willie Mullins with a 1-2 and it's TENNIS CAP who is given the vote over Pique Sous. The former has come through the ranks and after completing a double in handicaps ran a superb race when just failing to concede 7lb to Ted Veale in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham. Pique Sous was a long way behind stablemate Champagne Fever in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle but looks a very smart performer in the making and will ensure the selection has to work hard.
