Verdict

A fascinating finale with useful jumpers clashing on the level. PIQUE SOUS is chosen to maintain an unbeaten record on the level, having landed a Dundalk contest earlier in the year with the minimum of fuss. Willie Mullins' talented hurdler has plied most of his trade on much softer ground but showed he can handle quicker conditions when a fine third on good ground in the 2012 Cheltenham Festival bumper behind stable companion, Champagne Fever. Ted Veale enjoyed a tremendous jumps campaign in which he simply did nothing but improve. A County Hurdle success at the Cheltenham Festival was followed by a runner-up performance behind Jezki in Grade 1 class at the Punchestown equivalent. However, he may not appreciate the ground as much as the selection. Blackmail houses fair bumper form whilst Encrypted Message is best watched as he seems to have lost his way after landing a Killarney handicap last September.
