Verdict

Willie Mullins must be despairing of getting a race out of Champagne Agent, who has run really well on several occasions but has now had eleven starts over timber without winning. It will be a surprise if he's out of the frame here but once again he may have to settle for second best, this time to GIANT'S QUEST. He's another who has produced some strong efforts against decent opposition and though absent since the autumn his overall form gives him the edge. Elegant Statesman could prove the fly in the ointment as he gained many admirers when running away with a Cork bumper and has experience between the flags. The remainder look up against it.
