Verdict
Willie Mullins has a couple of winners on the board in the first two days of this meeting and his Shantou gelding GENERAL COUNSEL can add to that tally in the opener. The lightly raced six-year-old can get the better of stablemate and French import Hybery. You Can Call Me Al has been running with plenty of credit in defeat recently and can compete for remaining prize money with the Henry De Bromhead-trained Jason The Militant and Ennemi Public in the colours of Gigginstown House Stud for trainer Gordon Elliott.
