Verdict

Glamorgan Duke gained a shock victory in a Grade A handicap at Leopardstown last month, though that was over 2m5f. I'm A Game Changer couldn't quite hold off the smart Tornado Flyer in a Grade 3 here in December and may again have to give best to a Willie Mullins' entry as CUT THE MUSTARD won a mares' Listed race very easily here and the 3lb she receives could just be enough to make the difference. Sizing Pottsie took advantage of testing conditions with an easy victory at Fairyhouse and looks a smart recruit while Yaha Fizz made all for an impressive victory on heavy going at Punchestown a fortnight ago.
