Formscan - Willie Mullins looks to have a stranglehold on this contest, with almost half the field and likely top four in the betting, and it can pay to side with the deeply talented BLOOD DESTINY, who has shown his rivals a clean pair of heels in both appearances since moving to Ireland. By a sire that the trainer knows well in No Risk At All, this gelding looks to have a big future ahead of him and should be suited by conditions. Lossiemouth had swept all before her before finishing an unlucky second to stablemate Gala Marceau at the Dublin Racing Festival, and a strong case can be made for her to overturn the form on this occasion, with the extra furlong a big plus. Three lengths separated French recruits Zenta (first) and Hypotenus (second) when they met in a Fairyhouse Grade 3 and both are open to improvement.
