BALLYNEETY confirmed promise shown in his sole bumper appearance last term and scoring cosily on his hurdles/seasonal debut at Gowran last month and, open to any amount of improvement, he is fancied to complete the double. Rock Road has plenty of find on the figures but could prove dangerous if left alone in front, while Due Reward looks just about the pick of Henry de Bromhead's duo.

A number of exciting prospects go to post here, none more so than TORNADO FLYER. He was amongst the best bumper performers around last season, finishing third at the Cheltenham Festival before landing Punchestown's feature event, and it's worth noting that Willie Mullins has won the last three renewals of this contest. School Boy Hours and Kalum River are both race-fit/experienced rivals to be wary of, while Press Conference and Dream Conti also shaped with lots of promise in the bumper sphere last term.

It might pay to side with COUNTESS CATHLEEN in what looks a tricky puzzle for punters to solve. The daughter of Yeats shaped with plenty of promise last term, both over hurdles and in the odd bumper, and it was unfortunate how she signed off the season with a fall in Grade 3 company at Limerick. She now enters the handicap ranks off a fair-looking mark and shades the verdict ahead of Party Playboy, who was a fine third on his handicap bow over the extended 2m here, and Thurles maiden winner Jake Peter.

MIN has won first time out in each of the last three seasons and he can do so again here. Willie Mullins' charge has only run twice over this trip, hacking up at Gowran 13 months ago before touched off in the Melling Chase at Aintree, and everything looks in place for him to run another mighty race. JLT hero Shattered Love returned with a fine effort in Grade 2 company at Down Royal and she demands respect receiving the mares allowance, while Balko Des Flos, an easy Ryanair winner in March, can hopefully leave behind his disappointing comeback.
