Age: 9
Weight: 11-3
OR: 153
Days: 57

The first runner is the versatile Darasso for Joseph O'Brien who has shown he can mix it with the best over both hurdles and fences during his career, but might just find one too good in here.

Kept active all the way through this year He was a winner at Naas in January beating the smart Saint Felicien in a Grade 3 contest and then went to Gowran in a similar event and was second to the progressive Teahupoo.

Kept over hurdles in April he was sent into a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse and got back to winning ways but then took on Honeysuckle and Echoes In Rain in the Grade 1 Punchestown Champion Hurdle and had to settle for third.

The runs might have caught up with him when running in a Grade 3 at June, but then at Galway back over fences he was a superb second to Hewick in the Galway Plate.

The form of that race was franked with the Shark Hanlon trained winner since landing the American Grand National and Darasso was a superb third when last seen over three miles behind Busselton and Recite A Prayer in the Kerry National.

Down to his preferred trip out of handicap company he could give another big run.

Tornado Flyer

Weight: 11-12
OR: 163
Days: 180

Torando Flyer for Willie Mullins is his first of two runners in the race and if getting back to the form of his win in the 2021 King George he looks appealing.

However, since that run he was pulled up in the Gold Cup and then at the Punchestown festival only beat two home in the Punchestown Gold Cup.

Sent to Auteuil in May for the Grade 1 Grand Course de Hales he again was disappointing only beating one runner home and on that form he is opposable, especially running over a trip that is shorter than ideal.

Looks a prep run.

T: Gordon Elliott
N/A
Age: 8
Weight: 11-3
OR: N/A
Days: 334

Gordon Elliott's sole representative is the frustrating but talented Pencilfulloflead who has been lightly raced over the last year or so and that could play to his strengths.

Sent chasing at the start of 2020 he got off the mark at the first time of asking over 2m 6 1/2f at Galway and then backed that up at Punchestown over the same trip in the Grade 2 Florida Pearl Novice Chase.

A narrow second to the smart Colreevy at Christmas that year in the Faugheen Novice Chase at Limerick, he then was last seen in his novice season finishing third at Naas up to 3m1f behind Eklat De Rire and Escaria Ten.

Not seen again for 11 months, he returned last season in December at Ascot over 2m5f in a Graduation Chase and was a faller, with the race being won by dual Grade 1 winner L'Homme Presse.

Again he has been off the track and down to this trip on his first run for a while it looks a tough aim but he is a horse to follow going forward this season.

Paul Townend

Blue Lord

J: Paul Townend
T: W P Mullins
N/A
Age: 7
Weight: 11-8
OR: 156
Days: 203

The final runner in the race and the most likely winner of the race is the Willie Mullins trained Blue Lord who should be a class above this field.

Having his first run in open company over fences he is receiving 4lb off stablemate Tornado Flyer which could be crucial for him.

Very smart hurdler for Mullins when second in the Grade 1 Lawlor's Of Naas Novice Hurdle behind Bob Olinger and then he was third at the DRF behind stablemate Appreciate It.

Set to finish second in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle again behind Appreciate It before falling at the last, he was then a close third at Punchestown behind another stablemate in Echoes In Rain.

Always bought to be a chaser he showed last season just how good he can be making his debut at Fairyhouse in December when seeing off stablemate El Barra with ease and then in January eased to a 20 length victory over Lifetime Ambition.

Sent to the Dublin Racing Festival he landed a hat-trick over fences and his first Grade 1 when taking the Irish Arkle narrowly from Riviere D'etel.

Running a valiant race at the Cheltenham festival in the Arkle he was third behind Edwardstone but he gave one of the best performances of his career when last seen winning in the Grade 1 Barberstown Castle Novice Chase.

Big player up in trip.
