Plenty of runners but it doesn't look the hottest of events and Willie Mullins may have found a good opportunity for ARCTIC FIRE to make a winning debut. A half-brother to winners in France and out of a German 1m1f winner, he'll be ready for his opening run. Enchanted Forest has comfortably the best form of those with experience and he's been going well in handicaps but is still a maiden after 19 starts and can hardly be relied on. Winning point-to-pointer Bar Stool Bob ran well in bumpers in the spring and has some experience over hurdles while Diyala enters the fray in good form having won on the Flat at Musselburgh last month.
