Just Get Cracking was always travelling nicely on his debut at Limerick but just couldn't quicken past Poker School in the heavy ground. Ustica was a 20/1 chance when making a successful start for Philip Kirby at Newcastle and has been transferred to Jonjo O'Neill. Willie Mullins has won this three times in recent years so Very Much So is an obvious one to keep an eye on as is Caleb Coomber, who is a full brother to a winning bumper. NATIVE DISPLAY has numerous winning relatives, several of them in bumpers, and won't have been sent here by Nicky Henderson unless thought capable of coming away with the spoils so she is handed the vote. Noel Meade's pair Russian Bill and Snow Falcon are respected while Dessie Hughes' Daydream Island has a speedier pedigree than most and could reward each-way support.
