Verdict

Moyle Park was the stable's second string on his debut at Leopardstown on St Stephen's Day but gained an impressive victory over subsequent winner Blackmail. Willie Mullins also runs the newcomer Dr Schultz, who is thrown in at the deep end in this tough event. The Game Changer attracted good support on his first start at Cork last month and was always travelling nicely, eventually running out a comfortable winner. It's hard to know what WRATH OF TITANS achieved when landing a point at Lingstown last month by a distance but this 150,000 euros purchase is very highly regarded and has numerous bumper winners in his pedigree. He could be the one today though Harvey Logan made a promising start behind Waxies Dargle at Limerick and will have benefited from the experience while Don Cantillon wouldn't be sending recent point-to-point winner Classic Move from Newmarket without good reason. Aidan O'Brien's Carriganog was disqualified after swerving badly and finishing fourth at Fairyhouse last month and will need to do much better.
