Verdict

The filly Buildmeupbuttercup is a good starting point, having run well enough in good company on the Flat since taking a bumper at Ascot and showing well at Aintree in the spring. Willie Mullins' charge is respected but ENVIOUS EDITOR made a pleasing start in this sphere at Naas last month and, with fitness and experience on his side, might go one better for Robbie Power. Email Rose was disappointing at Cork but should do better while Eclair De Beaufeu has had chances and is costly to back, but should win one of these soon. Dancing On My Own and Apocalypse are potential improvers.
