Willie Mullins has one runner in this contest, in the form of eight-year-old Saint Roi. He finished third in the Arkle at Cheltenham last month, behind Jonbon and El Fabiolo after unseating Mark Walsh in the Irish Arkle in February.
Won a grade one novice at Leopardstown in December by just over two lengths to Visionarian and wasn’t too far behind Jonbon in the Arkle last month so shouldn’t be taken lightly. Comes from a top yard and goes off the same mark as Banbridge but may find the market leaders too strong. Not dismissed, however.
