IN SUMMARY: The day two opener can go the way of the potential superstar that is SAMCRO, who is unbeaten in six rules runs and three of them have come over timber. He won a Grade 1 at Leopardstown last time ahead of Duc Des Genievres and that is the best form in this contest. He should have plenty more to come and he can back up his lofty reputation with a dominant display here.

Mind's Eye
J: Davy Russell T: Henry de Bromhead, Ireland
Beaten fifteen lengths by a cantering Samcro on his hurdling debut, though he has won twice since. It’s not hard to be put off him by his heavy defeat in a Grade B Handicap last time though and he perhaps lacks the progression of his rivals. Can only be watched here.
Knight In Dubai
J: Harry Skelton T: Dan Skelton
Point winner who was third in a Grade 2 at Warwick in January, but that career best form will not be enough to see him threatening here. He was very disappointing in novice company last time and back up in grade, he looks extremely vulnerable.
Next Destination
J: R. Walsh T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Has taken extremely well to hurdling after a smart bumper campaign, remaining unbeaten over timber when scoring in Grade 1 company at Naas in January. He handles softer ground and stamina looks to be his biggest asset. Has to be greatly respected.
J: J. W. Kennedy T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
Unbeaten in six rules starts, three of them over timber. He’s been impressive on all three occasions and looks a star in the making. He stays extremely well and handles softer ground, so he does look very tough to beat as the best should be yet to come from him.
Vision Des Flos
J: Robbie Power T: Colin Tizzard
Wind surgery seems to have worked the oracle, bouncing back from two disappointing runs when winning at Exeter last time. That performance was impressive, but it came over the extended two miles and he does have stamina to prove. His pedigree suggests it won’t be an issue and if seeing this out, he wouldn’t be dismissed for a place.
J: D. E. Mullins T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Not disgraced on hurdling debut two starts ago and improved on that effort when a wide-margin victor at Gowran Park in January. This is much tougher though and his stamina is far from assured, with his pedigree not suggesting he’ll stay. On that basis, it’s not hard to have serious doubts.
J: Daryl Jacob T: Ben Pauling
Point winner who has run to a solid standard on three occasions thus far, winning a competitive enough novice race at Doncaster last time. He shaped as though he had more to offer and a step up in distance is in his favour. Softer ground presents a slight question mark, but this stable won this last year and he could out-run his odds at a price.
Duc Des Genievres
J: P. Townend T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Making only his second Irish hurdling start when second to Samcro at Leopardstown in February, conceding first run. He wouldn’t have got to the leader that day regardless, but that was over two miles and this horse clearly wants this trip and beyond. He’s completely unexposed and is a big each way candidate.
Black Op
J: Noel Fehily T: Tom George
Impressive maiden winner who perhaps would have gained a Grade 2 success had he not blundered from the lead at the last. That form holds up well regardless and he should have far more to offer, especially in a race run at a strong pace. He’s tactically versatile and has strong each way claims.
Aye Aye Charlie
J: Conor Shoemark T: Fergal O'Brien
Four race maiden over timber who was well beaten by Black Op in a Grade 2 at this venue in December. He was merely weaving through beaten horses late on and none of his previous form suggests he’s going to be good enough to score here.
Brahma Bull
J: D. J. Mullins T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Unbeaten in four runs under rules, winning on hurdling debut at Thurles back in November. The form of that race lacks substance though and this is a big step up in grade against some more experienced, battle-hardened rivals. Ruby looks elsewhere and others are preferred this time.
J: Paddy Brennan T: Fergal O'Brien
Point and bumper winner who was second on hurdling debut to a smart rival at Leicester in December. The form of that race has turned out well and he’s completely unexposed, but it’s difficult to believe he’ll be good enough in such a smart field at the top end.
Diablo De Rouhet
J: Mark Grant T: Jo Hughes
Arrives here in good form, but that has come at a much lower level than this. His sole victory remains in a modest looking maiden hurdle and he looks completely out of his depth at this level.
Ahead Of The Curve
J: James Corbett T: Susan Corbett
Six year old who has been running to a fair standard of late, fourth in a Handicap at Musselburgh last time. That said, he’s one of the most exposed runners in this field and a drop in distance isn’t sure to suit. It’s very easy to look elsewhere.
