An ordinary maiden to get us underway it won’t take much winning. Willie Mullins continues to conquer all before him and he will expect Cavallino to continue that trend. Still a maiden under rules, cheekpieces are on for the first time. His best form is latest when finishing fourth in a Novice Hurdle at Punchestown.
This looks more up his ally in terms of quality and he sets the standard. He is a beautiful chestnut, so easy on the eye and despite not being a stable star, today could be his big day. Connections stand out a mile in this race.

Very competitive Handicap Hurdle and a big field. Mister Butler stands out here however on the back of two eye-catching runs. Especially latest when finishing second at Fairyhouse. First run for a new yard having left Charles Byrnes and new Trainer Robbie Burns will be looking forward to this race.
Market moves will be worth watching and a drop back in trip may suit on a testing track like Clonmel. His form stands out in the context of this race and a big run can be expected.
Reine Fee carries top weight but is doing so for a reason. She has the best form in this Mares Handicap Chase and despite just one win in 22 National Hunt races, her form is much better than that suggests. Reine Fee has finished in the top three in four of her last five starts and rarely runs a bad race.
A good second at Navan a few weeks back means she comes here in good form. Course and distance will suit while the ground is also in her favour. No one will begrudge the selection a victory carrying top weight.
The NAP on the card for me is the Padraig Roche trained Marshalled in the JP McManus colours. Ran a cracker last month when just getting caught on the line. Up three pounds, had Marshalled held on in that race would certainly be higher in the handicap. Will see out this trip stronger than most of his rivals and he is sure to go close.
If he can run to a similar level as last time he is the one to beat. Owner JP McManus sponsors the race and connections may expect a photo at the end of todays race.
