Verdict

Willie Mullins can complete an opening race double via TASITIOCHT, who put a hurdling debut fall at Gowran behind her to score comfortably at Navan where she could always be seen going nicely. An entry in the Future Champions Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown suggests she's held in high regard and it will be a surprise if she's beaten though she's taking on strong company. Spring Hawk has only won once over timber but is a good yardstick as she's raced in decent company throughout while Somedaysomehow showed the benefit of dropping back in trip to beat a good field at Fairyhouse and there should be more to come. She had Carries Darling a long way behind that day and the latter looked suited by 2m4f when beating a big field at Clonmel last month.
