    Verdict

    Tawaagg, C'Est Ca and Tarkari occupied the three minor places behind Puyol in the MCR Handicap Hurdle at Leopardstown in January. Willie Mullins sent all three to Cheltenham but the former and latter ran badly in the County Hurdle and C'Est Ca fell at the first in the Martin Pipe Conditionals. Tarkari, Jigalo and Colleoni finished 1-2-3 in a similar handicap at Leopardstown in February and the revised weights suggest Jessie Harrington's charge, who is still a maiden despite dead-heating and later disqualified at Thurles in January, can come out on top this time. MOLVILLE was conceding 18lbs to Jigalo when beating him comfortably at Leopardstown in February and Martin Brassil's improving five-year-old looks capable defying a 9lbs hike in the weights.
