Verdict

WICKLOW BRAVE looks to have frightened away any credible opposition. Willie Mullins' charge completed a hat-trick of bumper victories in the summer and the only drawback is his lack of experience on testing ground. He'll have no problems jumping hurdles and can't be opposed. Golden Silence has shown a glimmer of ability and Street Party scored at Dundalk in November while Synchronicity has been well supported on a couple of occasions so connections must believe he's better than he's been able to show. Hareth may do best of the remainder.
