Willie Mullins is triple-handed here and all of his entries look useful to say the least. It's difficult to choose between them though the fillies' allowance may just enable ADRIANA DES MOTTES to come out on top. Placed on testing ground in France, she made all for a very impressive victory over an admittedly inferior bunch at Leopardstown and can run these rivals ragged. Abbyssial had impressed on his debut for the yard but didn't please everyone when scrambling home at Gowran. He'll need to do better but looks capable of doing so and has to be a threat. All Pepper is an unknown quantity having arrived from France with a couple of victories in minor company but he could be anything. Plinth is an obvious threat to the Mullins' battalions though his jumping went to pieces when tackling Grade 1 company last time. It's quite possible that one or more of these rivals could be up to that level so he's overlooked.
