Verdict

Although there are plenty of entries, UPSIE is likely to be a warm order for this despite the fact she hasn't run for well over a year. She had plenty of subsequent winners behind, including the useful Un Beau Matin, when gaining the second of her French bumper victories and has been ready to race for some time. Willie Mullins appears to have found her a good opportunity and she can start with a victory. Aerlite Supreme is bred to be a decent jumper so the fact that he could get close in three bumpers suggests he can do well over timber but those with experience look a moderate bunch including To The Sky, who showed early promise but appears to have gone backwards.
