Verdict

Willie Mullins has chosen this for the introduction to hurdling of the brilliant bumper performer CHAMPAGNE FEVER. The winner of championship events here and at Cheltenham, he'll be at very short odds for his debut over timber and there'll be some long faces at the County Carlow yard if he doesn't make an impressive start. Ardboe Abbey has shown a bit of promise over timber after landing a Roscommon bumper in May while Five Point Plan will have needed his run at Fairyhouse after a long break and has shown some potential. Blinkers may have the desired effect on Andunowhat but she's undoubtedly been disappointing and Fire Belt has an absence to overcome.
