Verdict

MARASONNIEN, who won a Grade 1 over hurdles at Punchestown last April, started odds-on when making his chasing debut for Willie Mullins at Navan in December but was well beaten by The Westerner Boy. That brought him on and he did much better when runner-up to Lord Windermere in a much stronger event at Leopardstown and he's the type to go on improving. He's handed the vote though there are plenty of dangers including White Star Line, who has been sent to Cheltenham for his two latest runs but found 3m1f taxing his stamina on both occasions. Realt Mor has joined Gordon Elliott from Nicky Richards where he's been finding 2m too sharp so he's one to keep an eye on as is Golanbrook, who has made costly mistakes at the final fence on his last two starts. A Fine Young Man showed massive improvement when a close second to the very useful Terminal at Cork and is another to consider.
