Verdict

ROYAL ILLUSION couldn't have been more impressive in two starts so far as she hacked up at Punchestown and Cork. Willie Mullins sends just this daughter of Kings Theatre over from Ireland today and she will certainly take an awful lot of beating. Most obvious danger has to be Paul Nicholls' new recruit Danse Idol who chased home champion bumper winner Relegate when last seen. In a race filled with smart and exciting prospects Mrs Hyde for bumper king Fergal O'Brien is another worth consideration.
