A very strong entry for the money with Terminal and Flycorn both likely to be fancied. The former completed a hat-trick of bumper victories in France and made a winning start over hurdles for Willie Mullins at Navan but he hasn't progressed as expected on his last two starts and the quick ground could be against him. Flycorn has been competing at a very high level since his maiden success and ran very well for a 100/1 chance behind Simonsig at Aintree. Neither the ground nor trip should be a concern and he's a big threat to all but it's RISING TIME who gets the nod. Paul Nolan's mare has raced twice on good ground and remains unbeaten on the surface. She's taking on better company this time but is progressing nicely and looks the one to beat. Leighinmohr is unbeaten in two bumpers and a maiden hurdle but will need to find much more in this company.
