Verdict

None of these have ever run under Rules though several have experience between the flags. Willie Mullins took it a year ago and his ARE YA RIGHT CHIEF, a brother to bumper and hurdles winner Skorcher, will know his job and may be good enough. King Malik is the first foal of a mare from a very powerful jumping family while Patsy Cline is out of an unraced dam related to some useful performers. The four-year-old Gimli's Return has the pedigree to make a mark in this sphere while Miss Accurate is a sister to a winning bumper and should be noted though the betting market will probably prove the best guide.
