Willie Mullins had five entered at the early stage and relies on Marasonnien. Placed over hurdles and fences in France, he started odds-on for his Irish debut at Leopardstown but had no answer when Touch Back quickened past him. A stiffer test of stamina will suit and he must be a threat though LEAN TIMES gets the vote. Noel Meade's charge was having his first start for 10 months when a fine second to Rourke's Cross at Fairyhouse last month and travelled really well until tiring from the last. Nina Carberry produced a masterclass when making all for a very a easy bumper victory at Punchestown on board Kates Benefit, who makes her hurdling debut but looks a fine jumping prospect. Big Generator fell at the last when in with every chance on his only point-to-point start and has shown enough potential in bumpers to be considered for this.
