Verdict

Three-year-olds have a fine record and John Oxx won it last year with Minsk so stablemate Hay Point, who has only had six runs, has to be on the short list. Those who witnessed the performance of VOLEUSE DE COEURS at Galway can't have failed to be impressed and the assessor certainly was, handing her a 15lb rise in the weights. Dermot Weld's filly should handle the softer ground and should be too good for her returning stablemate Hidden Universe, who will be back over hurdles before long. Seventh Sign has improved dramatically since being stepped up in trip and was very impressive when completing a hat-trick at Killarney. He's another with a big weight rise to contend with but he should get into the mix. Missunited has won seven of her 11 starts on the Flat and over hurdles and has to be on the short-list along with Sir Ector, who followed a victory over this trip at Leopardstown with a very convincing success over hurdles. Willie Mullins won this in 2009 and Rattan, who has scored twice over hurdles recently, looks to have been laid out for the race.
