One of the more interesting runners in this contest, the Donnelly horse wasn't seen on the track for over 3 years when winning his first Hurdle start at Punchestown last month.
That was a very decent effort given the circumstances, being off the track for so long on heavy conditions, he then won comfortably by 5 lengths going away.
There would be a concern as to why he was off the track for so long, and he was swishing his tail in the final stages of his hurdle debut last time, which does raise concerns for some, but there is doubt he is talented to win like he did off a long break.
Should the normal Willie Mullins progression come into play with this horse, he could be the unknown quantity in this fascinating contest. A very interesting runner for the Mullins stables with the talented Bryan Cooper booked.
