This isn't for the faint-hearted and once again a market check is advised. Desert Hall couldn't have done much more on his debut behind Love On Top at Ballinrobe and will have learnt enough to give another good account. Massini's Brook showed massive improvement from his opening effort to run Indian Road Runner close at Kilbeggan and it will be a surprise if he's not involved in the finish. Once And For All looks a nice recruit from the point-to-point fields but Willie Mullins will be hoping BOSMAN RULE can make a winning debut, just as his full brother the Gold Cup winner Kicking King did in 2002, and he's handed the vote.
