Verdict

This should be informative though ANIBALE FLY was such an impressive winner of a Grade 3 at Naas last month that he'll take some beating despite a penalty. Haymount didn't appear to stay the trip that day but Willie Mullins must believe he was below his best and Ruby chooses him over Bellow Mome. Acapella Bourgeois made all and stayed on strongly over 2m4f here last month though he's untested over this trip but Edwulf has no problems with the distance having been narrowly beaten at Punchestown before beating Bachasson comfortably over this trip there. The remainder need to raise their game though all look capable of doing so.
