Verdict

Katie Walsh rode the winner for Willie Mullins last year and is on board the stable's newcomer Bluemountainbeach this time and the half-sister to Blackstairmountain is one for the short-list. The champion trainer also runs ROBINA MAI, beaten on her debut at Wexford but looking in need of the experience that day. She'll know much more this time and is handed the vote though there are plenty of dangers including Catimini, who made a winning start on testing ground at Wexford in December. Storm Away made a good impression when landing a Tramore bumper a couple of weeks ago and has to be respected along with Table Tips, who is reunited with Derek O'Connor after her victory in a point-to-point at Lemonfield.
