Verdict

Willie Mullins won this with Sir Des Champs two years ago and will be hoping Touch The Eden can produce a similar effort on his chasing debut. However, he couldn't have been chosen a much tougher introduction and it's FOXROCK, a fine runner-up to the useful Road To Riches on his debut over the bigger obstacles at Naas, who gets the nod. Operating wasn't far behind in third so has to be considered while Sizing Gold has always been regarded as a potential champion over fences and his victories over the likes of Defying Logic and Morning Assembly point to his class. If he jumps well he'll be very difficult to beat. Some Tikket was in front when coming to grief at the last on his chasing debut at Navan so is another to consider in what should be a very interesting contest.
