Verdict

Trainer Gordon Elliott has won this race four times since 2011 and his MINELLAFORDOLLARS can give the trainer a fifth win in the race by putting a disappointing effort on hurdling debut last time out behind him upped in trip today. The step up in trip looks likely to suit the point-to-point winner and he is taken to see off Derrinross who finished a close second at Punchestown last time wile the third-placed horse on that occasion Nick Lost can fill the same position today.
