Verdict

Willie Mullins had no less than 10 of the original 19 entries and leaves Thousand Stars, Mourad and Upsie in to do battle. The first-named hasn't won for almost two years but should still prove best of the trio having shown that he's still a force to be reckoned with behind Whisper and At Fishers Cross at Aintree. GET ME OUT OF HERE came to this race in 2012 having previously finished runner-up in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham and is treading exactly the same path this time. He couldn't quite get past Whisper at Cheltenham but holds Thousand Stars on a line through the winner and can gain his second victory in the race. Un Beau Matin had been runner-up to some useful performers before easily beating Passage Vendome at Downpatrick and could prove best of the remainder as potential punters would need to forgive Upsie a poor run at Cork..
