Willie Mullins has a couple of runners, Franco De Port and Stormy Ireland. Stormy Ireland has been in incredible form this year, she’s won on her last two starts. Two miles should be ok for her, she likes to make the running, she’s in really good form and I think she’s going to very hard for anything else to beat.
Willie pulls Carefully Selected out quite quickly here and Small Farm too. I think Carefully Selected will be very hard to beat and if he can complete and finish in the first four, he looks like he’s going to the National Hunt Chase in Cheltenham.
We thought the Big Getaway couldn’t lose at Christmas. He did – but he won’t lose tomorrow.
Not really a race we associate with Willie Mullins but Billaway ran a blinder in Down Royal on St. Stephens’ Day. Casey Jem makes his debut for the yard, he’s Willie’s other runner. On form, Patrick had to go for Billaway but I think Casey Jem at a big price could run in the money but Billaway will be hard to beat.
