Verdict

FELIX YONGER runs here instead of the Grade 1 Racing Post at Leopardstown and the move should pay off. A Grade 2 winning hurdler, he's unbeaten over fences and was particularly impressive in beating Trifolium at Navan last time. He's a long way clear on official ratings and this looks at his mercy. His stablemate The Papparazi Kid was 23l behind at Navan and can hardly be expected to turn the tables while Shrapnel and Balnaslow were beaten a long way by the selection at Punchestown earlier when Jim Will Fix It pulled up. Clar Na Mionn has run well against strong opposition since making a winning debut over fences and may be the one to chase Willie Mullins' charge home.
