Verdict

Joseph O'Brien complicates the issue with three entries and the newcomer Champagne Paddy could prove the best of them as he's by Doyen out of a prolific winner on the Flat and over jumps. His stable companion Border Control is likely to attract attention after a reasonable debut at Ballinrobe but this can go to STATE OF NIRVANA. She was up with the pace for most of the way on her debut at Punchestown in April and with that under her belt can make enough progress to take this. Scheu Time hasn't been beaten far in any of his starts and is an obvious contender under Katie Walsh.
