Willie Mullins' KOLUMBUS got within a length and a half of the useful Morgan back in February and having gone close at Ballinrobe last month when third, he should play a leading part here and can get off the mark. Indian Music got within a length of the winner at Limerick last time and has to be on the shortlist, while it will be interesting to see if Royal Zorro can repeat the form of his impressive Sligo bumper win following a year off.
Prediction : 1st Kolumbus 2nd Indian Music 3rd Royal Zorro

WOODLAND OPERA is a high-class performer on his day and despite finishing down the field over fences last time, is entitled to go well over hurdles now back up in trip. Koshari has a similar chasing profile to the selection and is another interesting back over hurdles, while Count Simon has knocked on the door of late and the Downpatrick winner is entitled to run well up in trip.
Prediction : 1st Woodland Opera 2nd Koshari 3rd Count Simon

TIME IS TIME has gone close over further the last twice and despite having to carry an extra 2lb today, the drop back to 2m4f could be what is required to see him score under Rules for the first time. Uttoxeter winner Celtic Monarch takes on what should be his optimum trip now having performed respectably over 2m6f at Carlisle last time, while Joly Maker was slightly disappointing when favourite at Limerick but a repeat of his Wexford second before that should see him go close.
Prediction : 1st Time Is Time 2nd Joly Maker 3rd Celtic Monarch

Willie Mullins saddles an interesting stable newcomer having recruited Aramon for 40,000 euros from Germany, and the two-time winner on the Flat is entitled to play a leading role on his first attempt over obstacles. However, preference is for GLOBAL JACKPOT, who has finished second in three of his last four outings, with his best effort coming over a similar distance when second to the highly-regarded Stay Humble over 2m3f at Downpatrick. The consistent Cooldine Bug is another capable of playing a part.
Prediction : 1st Global Jackpot 2nd Aramon 3rd Cooldine Bog

JUDGEMENT DAY went down by a head on his chase debut at Wexford at the end of last month and Henry de Bromhead's gelding can go one better with cheekpieces applied to sharpen him up a bit. Young Turk showed some useful form over timber and is respected on his chasing bow, while Niven looks best of the remainder on his third to St Stephen's Green at Galway last time.
Prediction : 1st Judgement Day 2nd Young Turk 3rd Niven

WILLIAM DU BERLAIS has improved on his last couple of starts with successes at Killarney and Tipperary in the past month and Enda Bolger's gelding looks more than capable of defying another rise in the handicap. Adimelo got off the mark at the fifth attempt over fences and looks a solid threat on his handicap debut, while the drop in trip could benefit All Hell Let Loose, who appeared not to get home last time at Killarney.
Prediction : 1st William Du Berlais 2nd Adimelo 3rd All Hell Let Loose

PRESENTING LEAH was second on her sole point-to-point outing back in May and was purchased for 40,000 pounds at the Cheltenham Sales soon after. She is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Bellshill and she is entitled to go close on her first start for Willie Mullins. Scotsman's Bay fell at the second on his only hurdles start at Gowran but can bounce back running in a bumper for the first time, while the booking of Jamie Codd is an interesting for newcomer Baratheon.
Prediction : 1st Presenting Leah 2nd Scotsmans Bay 3rd Baratheon
