    I think Mullins could win this one with any of the first 5 there, and also with Killultagh Vic. Very boring and too hard to pick the right one at this stage though.

    I think Garde La Victoire is a good bet at 33/1 for this. I think I've mentioned this elsewhere, but my points were ... he was backed into fav for the JLT (C&D) and was being tipped all over the place. You'll have a top jockey on board and the ground will be in his favour. The negatives we're that he fell the last two outings which is factored in to his price. A few 'confidence boosters' though and I think he'll be a bit shorter.

    As a betting prospect though, Mullins will probably have the fave at evens, so anything you fancy that isn't a Mullins horse, you'll get a decent price on much closer to the race that taking the chance now.

    I'd love Al Ferof to win it

    Un de Sceuaux massive value at 12s - niggle that he might go to World Hurdle only thing stopping a proper bet.

    Like the thought of in de sceaux for this but I couldn't back him without seeing form in the book that he stays that trip over fences, I know he won over 2m 5f in a hurdle race in France, but that's slightly different to 2m 5f over fences at Cheltenham

    I saw UDS clout the Pond Fence at Sandown as hard as any horse and mistakes crept into his game last season which is why I think they put him back over timber.
    He's hit the deck twice in his career already, I'd be more concerned about his ability to leave the ground and land safely than his ability to stay, of course it's a minefield predicting where Mullins horses will end up but I think the WH would seem the obvious race for him especially if Thistlecrack stays chasing all year....

    Ballycasey now thrown into the mix, quite impressive performance today beating road to riches by 11 lengths and with some ease, Willie lost a few chasers with the gigginstown situation and ballycasey could be one to step up now they no the right trip!!

    I'm not sure he's good enough to be in the mix for a Ryanair GJT. The two times he's run at the festival he's looked a massive danger at the top of the hill but just hasn't got home.
