13:05 – Minella Crooner

Stayed on really well over 2f shorter here behind Journey With Me, and then hacked up over 3m.  The trip is fine – massive chance.

13:35 – Vauban

It’s a match with Fil D’or, and based on what Pied Piper did at Cheltenham, Vauban is very decent having run him close. I also think Leopardstown might suit Vauban better as Fil D’or will love the really long straight in Cheltenham come March.

14:10 – Riviere D’Etel

Should be nearly favourite for this on a line through Ferny Hollow, I’m guessing Ferny Hollow is a good bit ahead of Blue Lord, so Riviere D’Etel the one to beat in my book.

14:45 – Dunboyne

Was eyecatching behind Panda Boy the last day in what was probably a prep for today, was hampered by a loose horse and then stayed on well and wasn’t penalised by the handicapper for it.

15:15 – Janidil

I didn’t think I’d be tipping Janidil, but I think there is so much pace in the race that it could fall apart late on and a closer like Janidil could pick up the pieces.

15:50 – Grange Walk

He’s 7lb higher now than when he won here at Christmas, with ground conditions similar he could be a bit of value to follow up.

16:25 – Sandor Clegane

Facile Vega will be all the rage but Paul Nolan’s string are flying at the moment and there’s nothing wrong with a 15L Punchestown win first time out.

Paddy’s best bets:

13:05 – Minella Crooner
13:35 – Vauban
14:10 – Riviere D’Etel
14:45 – Dunboyne
15:15 – Janidil
15:50 – Grange Walk
16:25 – Sandor Clegane
