Willie Mullins has won three of the last four renewals and has entered Midnight Game and Pickapocketortwo though the latter was engaged at Punchestown yesterday. Midnight Game has done most things right and won a Listed contest at Thurles last month. He's sure to go well though his overall form falls just short of that shown by both Cause Of Causes and HISAABAAT. The former won the hugely competitive Ladbroke at Ascot after an excellent run in a Cheltenham Grade 3 so will be difficult to beat though it's Dermot Weld's charge who just gets the nod despite a poor run behind Jezki at Naas as his juvenile form, when successful in two Grade 1s and runner-up in the Triumph Hurdle, showed him to be an outstanding prospect.
