Mullins trained Black Hercules comes into this race as favourite with 2 wins in a row at this distance at Gowran Park and Punchestown in January and December. Shaneshill is also another Mullins horse and with 2 wins too.
Modus is stepping up slightly to this distance, but more importantly has a Cheltenham win arleady and was well backed at the New Year's Day meet. Killultagh Vic has won well at Naas twice in January and February and has every chance of featuring here alongside the other top runners.
Vigil has shown some potenital with a win at Leopardstown in February. Value At Risk has 3 career races and won well at Leopardstown and Fairhouse in December, but has not run since. Golantilla ran in this race last year and was 3rd, priced at 9/1. Out of all the top runners Golantilla is the only horse with Cheltenham Festival experience.
Silver Concorde featured in a couple of races in 2012, but has recently made a comeback with a win at Leopardstown in December.
In a race with so little experience any of the top runners could feature here, but we're going with Cheltenham experience.
WinDrawWin Prediction - Golantilla To Win. Shaneshill and Modus To Place.
