Verdict

Willie Mullins is clearly concerned about the fitness of Cooldine, who despite recent support for the Gold Cup, has plenty to prove. Notre Pere should slog his way into contention, but MONEY TRIX is the safest option. He's an improver and after outstaying both Joncol and Notre Pere in the Lexus, is worth chancing at a fair price.
