Verdict

HAMUNDARSON made a good start over hurdles when third here a fortnight ago and is taken to build on that and get off the mark now. The WIllie Mullins-trained Fan Fan La Tulipe could easily leave the form of last season's hurdle debut run behind and pose a big threat. Pure Genius is also likely to have a say if settling better than on his reappearance.

  1. HAMUNDARSON (IRE)
