Verdict

This is no straightforward task for Willie Mullins' MORNING RUN but you would expect the mare to step up considerably on her victory at Punchestown and she has a bit more scope than Downpatrick winner Solita. Nina Carberry's mount Hontytonktennessee is better than he showed at Punchestown last month while Mr Boss Man has shown some ability but will probably do better over hurdles. Winning pointer Port Rock also falls into that category.
