Verdict

There are lines of form that suggest this will be another for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh via ROYAL MOLL. She made a winning debut in a Sligo bumper in August in which subsequent hurdles winner Oscar's Passion was 9l behind. Then sent to Galway for her debut over hurdles, she had to fight hard to hold off Catimini, who then proceeded to beat Diyala by just over 5l. The latter made several mistakes including one at the last and should make a race of it with her allowance. Kilbarry Beauty would be a major threat if in the kind of form that saw her beat the long odds-on Urano at Killarney in May but she reportedly finished lame when tackling Grade 3 company at Down Royal on the first day of the month.
