Verdict

All of these have won a race of some description over the trip but none have scored on the track. Oscar Delta was one of last season's unluckiest losers when unseating Jane Mangan on the run-in in Cheltenham's Foxhunter's when clear. He couldn't cope with the winner, Salsify, when they met at Punchestown but that was no disgrace and he's an obvious threat to all. BURREN RIVER is a smart young hunter who defied trouble in-running to score at Limerick and has plenty going for him. Derek O'Connor's presence in the saddle may just swing things his way. Boxing Along has now won six times between the flags, most of them in strong company, so he must pose a threat. Boxer Georg is a rare performer for Willie Mullins in this sphere and generally goes well in decent company without quite managing to get there.
