This looks tricky in view of SIMENON's shocking run when long odds-on at Punchestown. The dual Royal Ascot winner never travelled at any stage and finished tailed off so potential punters will need to forgive that run. Un Beau Matin announced his arrival by taking that from Owega Star but Willie Mullins' charge hopefully just had an off day and can bounce back. Whatuthink is at the veteran stage but certainly didn't show it when beating Voler La Vedette over the C&D last month and though Muirhead is better known as a chaser these days he's still a classy staying hurdler and won't go down without a fight. Neither Maller Tree nor Sailors Warn can be dismissed in an intriguing contest.
