Verdict

A cracking handicap in which WINNER TAKES ITALL is fancied to follow up his emphatic Bellewstown hurdles victory earlier in the month given he looked right back to being the useful Flat performer of 2020 there. Willie Mullins has a good record in this event so his Ciel De Neige is feared most ahead of Call Me Lyreen and Cape Gentleman.

  1. WINNER TAKES ITALL (FR)
  2. CIEL DE NEIGE (FR)
  3. CALL ME LYREEN (IRE)
