Verdict

Alileo is the interesting one here as he attempted to make all on his debut for Willie Mullins at Ballinrobe in August and though he jumped poorly he wasn't beaten far. He'll have been given plenty of schooling so is certainly one to watch. Little Rocky won three times on the Flat in the UK and has almost lost his maiden tag on a couple of occasions over timber so it will be a surprise if he's not in the action. Well Tuned has now had eight races over hurdles and though she's gone close to winning she may find a couple of these too quick on the fast ground. EASTER HUNT was very unlucky not to have made a successful debut between the flags as he fell at the last when clear. He's been confined to the minimum trip over timber and run well enough but this should bring out the best in him and he gets the vote. Ellie Mia is another stepping up in trip and with her allowance an obvious bonus she should go well along with Moss Street, whose narrow defeat by Plinth at Leopardstown in December is very strong form.
