Zadarska has been a real disappointment for Willie Mullins though he did run his best race over this track and trip. Butney Boy has done his best on ground with plenty of give while Nell's Nan hasn't been anywhere near this trip. SAM DA VINCI had been running well before a moderate effort at Bellewstown last month. He takes some rousting along but this looks a simpler task and he's taken to finally get off the mark.
