Verdict

After a fine week it's business as usual for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh, who can get the day off to a bright start via DJAKADAM. Long odds-on when unshipping his rider on his debut for the yard in January, he made amends with a facile all-the-way success at Gowran and will be stepping up in grade after this. Courage will be winning soon, though he was a long way behind the selection at Gowran before a better effort at Navan a couple of weeks ago. Charlie Swan's hurdling newcomer Foot Soldier has some fair form on the Flat and is fit from a run at Dundalk earlier this month.
