Verdict

Moonlight Boy has won a point-to-point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle and would have finished much closer on his chasing bow but for being impeded. He should go well but Prima Vista looked in need of a stiffer test when beaten over this course and distance last time. Waltz Legend ran well here in April, though blotted his copybook at Downpatrick, while Chill has a hurdles rating of 123 which would put him in the picture if transferring to fences. BALLY LONGFORD has left Willie Mullins to join Henry De Bromhead and should prove a smart recruit as he's been in fine form over hurdles, particularly when runner-up in a lucrative handicap at the Punchestown Festival. He can make a successful debut as he had the champion trainer's Indevan behind in that race, though there's very little between them and the latter is also the type to do really well over the bigger obstacles.
