Found A Fifty will likely be sent off a fairly short priced fav for this but I think the value is HERCULE DU SEUIL for Willie Mullins. This horse has won his last 5 and has skipped Cheltenham to come here fresh for this. Willie Mullins is 2-2 in this race and also owner JP McManus does well in this having won it 3 times in the past too. British runners have a poor record so the likes of Etalon and Libberty Hunter are easy to pass over. He likely has more to come and could prove the answer. Of the rest Quilixios failed to give his running last month but is surely better than that so if bouncing back could emerge as the danger. Matata can race freely and I wouldn’t want to see him get too much rope either as he ran creditably in the Arkle.
