Willie Mullins complicates matters by saddling MOVEABLE ASSET, the winner of one of his two starts over timber and successful on the Flat at Tramore two weeks ago, and the four-year-old Fatcatinthehat, a very promising youngster but unraced since well beaten in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham. The former is handed the vote though Bob Le Beau won't allow the Mullins pair to have things their own way as he's been in winning form this summer. Westhaven won a maiden on fast ground at Kilbeggan last month but was well beaten over fences at Roscommon subsequently while Hidden Future has plenty to find.
