Verdict

King Lir is from a very good chasing family and will surely do better when tackling obstacles but Kid Curry is a half-brother to a winning bumper so should have the required pace for this. Anshan Bay is from the family of Limestone Lad and is likely to need further in time and though POPCORN is related to winners over fences in France he hails from the Willie Mullins yard and will probably be the one to beat.
