Verdict

Willie Mullins had four entered at the early stage and Primroseandblue is the one selected though he will need to do better than he did on his chasing debut at Kilbeggan. That looks a distinct possibility, however, though he's up against a couple of potentially very useful chasers here. SHRAPNEL won a point-to-point and scored three times over hurdles including an easy defeat of Rattan in April. His pedigree suggests he'll do even better over fences and he just gets the vote over Usa. The latter is comfortably the pick of those with experience over fences having followed a victory on the beach at Laytown with a fine second to Nearest The Pin at Ballinrobe. Thomond is another who could do well in this sphere having run very well behind Sir Vincent at Roscommon.
