Some promising types here but all eyes will be on CALL THE POLICE. Willie Mullins' charge, who won the beginners chase on this card last year, was beaten narrowly in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown before finishing third in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham. He was cantering along in front when coming to grief at the last in a Grade A handicap at Punchestown in May and should make a winning return. Hidden Cyclone is a worthy opponent though has to concede weight by virtue of his Grade 3 victory at Naas last month. A high-class novice hurdler, he's taken really well to fences and his close second to Sir Des Champs at Leopardstown suggests he won't go down without a fight. Ninetieth Minute was a very good staying hurdler who has been doing well over fences though like the remaining trio he'll need to improve to see off the two principals.
