Verdict

It's hardly surprising that Willie Mullins has chosen to revert MIKAEL D'HAGUENET to hurdling after his abortive attempts over the bigger obstacles last season and the triple Grade 1 winner will be better for a recent run behind Voler La Vedette at Navan. He can get back to winning ways though New Phase will pose a threat if in the same kind of form that saw him comfortably beat Psycho at Cork. Canaly ran poorly on his reappearance and is better than that but Benash's jumping has gone to pieces and he's failed to finish in three of his last four starts, the last two over fences. Head Of The Posse and River Liane are chasers though the former has plenty of decent form over hurdles recently.
