It's about time URANO was winning over hurdles and this looks a good opportunity. Willie Mullins' charge, unbeaten in three bumpers in France, has cost his supporters a packet in three runs over timber for the champion trainer but he's come up against decent opposition and can finally come good. Cullentry Royal landed a Sligo bumper on his debut a year ago and bounced back to form on his final start over hurdles at Clonmel in September, though he wouldn't want any more rain. Tropical Three looks a big threat as she has run very well over timber on a couple of occasions and reverted to a bumper at the Punchestown Festival to gain a convincing victory. Never Complain and Kilbarry Beauty are others to note in a race which should produce winners over the summer.
