Verdict

ROI DU MEE won this a year ago then landed three Grade races including the jnwine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal where he had Sizing Europe well beaten. That sort of form gives him the edge and his latest run in the Betfair should be forgiven. Marito is likely to provide a stiff test as Willie Mullins' charge made a bright start over fences last year and would have taken a hand in the finish of the Jewson at Cheltenham but for falling two out. The champion trainer also runs Bishopsfurze, who has won eight of his 16 career races but hasn't been seen since unseating Ruby Walsh at Gowran a year ago. Buckers Bridge has Oscars Well 3l behind off levels at Gowran in November so the latter has a chance with a 3lb pull.
