Clonbanan Lad is possibly Ireland's best bumper but the quick ground won't play to his strengths. MOSCOW MANNON looks another high-class bumper and he won't mind the ground having won on good going at Galway last summer. His overall form looks strong enough for this and he's handed the vote. Pique Sous is progressing nicely but needs to make major progress from his Leopardstown success while Jezki hasn't beaten much in two Leopardstown victories though he's another with plenty of potential. New Year's Eve has done everything right so far and his trainer has been in outstanding form this season but the son of Motivator steps up massively from victories at Ludlow and Market Rasen. Royal Guardsman was impressive at Ascot last time and there may have been a valid excuse for an earlier defeat by the unbeaten Sir Johnson at Aintree.
