Trainer - Willie Mullins
Fell at Naas when returning for the season but was impressive in the Arkle last year and now steps up in the distance so could need a little more in this trip. Contender for the favourite and currently leads the market but could change in the lead up. Form suggests money should keep coming in for any odds on Footpad with a win at last year’s Arkle ahead of Brain Power and Petit Mouchoir. Often raced by Ruby Walsh and Cheltenham should be the combination of Walsh and Mullins yet again.
