Willie Mullins' record with bumper horses here is second to none so the unbeaten Supreme Bailerina should be a threat to all. Fairytale Theatre made her debut under Rules in a strong contest here in April but finished a neck behind fellow debutant Bull And Bush, who is also having her first start since here. Mayfair Music made a winning start at Fakenham in April while Sunday Serenade is improving and made in third-time lucky at Killarney in July. Lily Waugh is also heading in the right direction but LEGACY GOLD only has to give 4lb to her rivals, despite winning three times last season. She was particularly impressive in a Listed race at Aintree in April when beating a number of previous winners with consummate ease. Now with David Pipe, she could be one to follow this winter.
