Verdict

Willie Mullins has introduced some smart performers from France in recent weeks and UNIKA LA RECONCE could be another. She has a stamina-packed pedigree and finished runner-up in a 2m3f chase at Enghien in September but this isn't a tough start and she looks a bright prospect. Dubh Go Leir has had enough chances and looks better suited by quicker ground. She finished in front of Geraldine Gold in a similar race here last month but the latter improved on her next start in much more testing conditions. Speckled Wood made a promising debut here last month and should make enough progress to get involved but Lady Temptress will need to brush up her jumping.
