Verdict

ALL DAY LONG will take some stopping here judged on his run behind Not For Long at Wexford which was only his second start over timber. He's handed the vote to go one better though Willie Mullins could saddle an interesting contender in Alelchi Inois, who had some promising form in France in 2011 and would be the selection if getting a run from his reserve spot. Dancing Roe was totally unfancied on his debut at Fairyhouse but belied his odds with a cracking effort behind Juan De Gracia and looks certain to get involved. Elijah Gardner showed potential at Leopardstown in December and should be winning soon while Harlekin didn't enjoy quick ground at Gowran after a good effort on testing going at Cork.
