Verdict

Dushrembrandt, runner-up in a Grade 3 novice hurdle at Cork just over a year ago, should make a nice chaser but faces a difficult task on his debut. Suntiep was unbeaten before his chasing bow here in December and though probably in need of the run he stopped so quickly that something appeared amiss. But he's Ruby Walsh's pick over Touch The Eden, who couldn't cope with Rogue Angel at Punchestown though the remainder were a long way behind. SI C'ETAIT VRAI is comfortably the form pick on his three close seconds to very smart opponents including the classy Djakadam at Leopardstown and this looks his best chance to date.
