Verdict

The classy Realt Dubh won this a year ago but just one favourite has won in 10 renewals. FLEMENSTAR is certain to be the market leader and the only doubt is his ability to handle the quick ground but his overall form, especially when beating today's rival Gift Of Dgab 19l in the Arkle at Leopardstown, has the mark of a high-class performer. Rathlin has been going along nicely and completed a hat-trick with an impressive victory over Shot From The Hip at Naas but it's Call The Police who looks the biggest threat. Willie Mullins' charge finished a close second to the top-class Last Instalment in the Grade 1 PJ Moriarty at Leopardstown before a superb run behind Bobsworth in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham and will find any flaws in Flemenstar's armoury.
