Willie Mullins had three original entries and relies on Killultagh Vic, who finished a 14-length third on his debut in a point-to-point at Largy in April. He'll come on a bundle with the champion trainer and has to be respected. Boondooma was only beaten seven lengths by the high-class Briar Hill at Thurles in January but hasn't repeated that sort of form subsequently so this can go to WOUNDED WARRIOR. A winner between the flags at Maralin in March, he started joint-favourite with the very promising Shaneshill at Naas last month but wasn't quite able to match strides with that one and eventually faded into third. That was a cracking effort and he should gain his first success under Rules.
