Verdict

Popcorn beat the useful Ratlin on his chasing debut at Thurles in November 2011 but hasn't been seen since trailing home the following month. Fitness is never a problem for one of Willie Mullins' so a big run is anticipated. Fever Pitch arrived in winning form for this a year ago and was only beaten a head by Rich Revival. He's on exactly the same mark and has to be considered. SHE'S GOT GRIT has come out of the point-to-point field in great style and, though receiving a 5lb hike for last month's Fairyhouse victory, she looks capable of more progress and can complete the double. Sole Witness is just 2lb higher than his victory here a couple of years ago and, though unsuccessful since, there was a sign of better to come at Punchestown last month.
