This race revolves around the unbeaten Samcro and it is no surprise to see him a short-priced favourite following his victory in the Grade 1 Deloitte Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown back in February. That said, the strength of his form does not match up with his price and a chance can be taken with NEXT DESTINATION. Willie Mullins' gelding won a Grade 1 at Naas last time out and that followed a Grade 2 success at Navan. The six-year-old has the benefit of Festival experience, having finished fourth in the Bumper 12 months ago, and he could upset the favourite this afternoon. It is hard to see anything but the aforementioned pair winning this contest but Black Op, Duc Des Genievres and Vision Des Flos should be in the mix for the minor money.

The two to focus upon are MONALEE and Presenting Percy because their form is stronger than the rest. Henry de Bromhead's gelding just gets the nod following his win in what appeared to be a strong renewal of the Grade 1 Flogas Novice Chase at Leopardstown last month. The son of Milan made all that day and he did appear to have more in hand than the final winning distance suggests. Presenting Percy won the Pertemps Final here last year and he has arguably improved for going over fences. That said, he did have a hard enough race behind Our Duke in the Red Mills just 25 days ago. Dounikos may lack the class of the previous pair but the conditions should suit and the step up to 3m is also a positive. Al Boum Photo is another with valid each-way claims.

Useful hurdler who failed to build on his promising Fairyhouse chase debut last time. Attentions switched back to smaller obstacles now but others make more appeal.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m 4f on good - yielding and soft ground. Pulled up 2 out when 5-1 in the Group 2 Ten Up Novice Chase at Navan over 3m (soft - heavy) in a Grade 2 chase won by Monbeg Notorious last month on his latest outing.
