Verdict

UN DE SCEAUX, twice a winning bumper in the French Provinces, made a sparkling debut for Willie Mullins in a maiden hurdle on this track in February and has been saved for this event. He could prove very exciting and should remain unbeaten despite stepping up markedly in class. Waaheb has become disappointing and was beaten at very long odds-on at Fairyhouse in February. He definitely has the best form but is best watched for the moment and Moscow Mannon could prove more of a threat as he's run well in better company after making a winning hurdling debut at Navan. Cops And Robbers is making very good progress and there was much to like about his close second to Pique Sous in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse earlier this month.
