Verdict

Mtada Supreme didn't run badly when fourth in this last year but Enniskillen was well beaten. Peter Maher's pair have both won over this unique course and Patrick Mullins is an intriguing booking for the latter. Enda Bolger has won an incredible eight of the last nine and JOSIES ORDERS should keep up the sequence. Already a winner on this track and three times successful over Cheltenham's 3m6f cross-country course, he's had a couple of recent runs over hurdles and will be ready for this. Sizing Coal has some smart form to his credit over regulation fences including a close third in the 2015 Irish National and a recent victory between the flags will have put him spot-on for this. Canaly has had plenty of success in his time and won a handicap over regulation fences here in January so could reach a place.
