Verdict

A huge field here but URANO will be at short odds and should land the spoils on a big day for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh. Unbeaten in three bumpers in France, he was caught close home on his hurdling debut at Thurles before coming up against the useful Ned Buntline here last month and will be very unfortunate to catch one as good this time. Smithfield hasn't been beaten far in all starts over hurdles and is a very good yardstick but he's now exposed and Some Article, a bumper winner at Punchestown, may pose more of a threat after a very promising hurdles debut at Navan. Angelas Money showed potential in testing ground at Punchestown and may do best of the remainder.
