The Sportsman's Verdict
The highly-regarded MONBEG WORLDWIDE was fairly beaten when five lengths adrift of Jetz at Fairyhouse, but he is given a second chance to prove his quality dropping down from two and a half miles. He should have too much for these rivals, with stablemate Rakhine State one of the possible alternatives on his hurdles bow, while Game Of War and Hitdroadjack give Henry De Bromhead two live chances.

The Sportsman's Verdict
TINTOWN ROBIN was poor at Thurles, but he is backed to bounce back at a track he scored at the time before. Bay Hill let down favourite-backers when third on his last National Hunt start, however, he has been kept fit on the Flat since and is considered. Scotch Quay was much improved when third last time, and the mount of Rachael Blackmore completes the shortlist.

The Sportsman's Verdict
COQUIN MANS has yet to finish outside of the top two in his seven racecourse outings, and it is interesting that Willie Mullins steps the five-year-old back up to three miles following his second to stablemate Melon in the Grade Two WKD Hurdle. He appears to set the benchmark the others have to strive for. Taglietelle has been a useful campaigner over the years but has rarely proved his worth outside of handicaps so the main danger may come from Val De Ferbet, whose chase defeat of A Toi Phil at the distance last season puts him right in the mix.

The Sportsman's Verdict
ROBIN DES MANA, the mount of Jack Kennedy, can build on his recent encouraging performances and get off the mark over the larger obstacles at the fourth time of asking. Gordon Elliott also saddles Steamboat Quay, who can't be ruled out despite failing to impress in two chase starts so far. The main opposition may come from Henry De Bromhead's Monbeg Chit Chat, who was second best on his fencing debut but is lightly raced and should have plenty of improvement to come.

The Sportsman's Verdict
JUST GET CRACKING kept on at the one pace when third off this mark over 2m at Cork and the step up in distance appears a logical move by connections. Bitview Colin fell on his last start over fences at Hexham but remains on an attractive chase mark, relative to his hurdles win off 9lb higher in the UK in October, and could also take a hand. The pick of the remainder may be recent Punchestown third Black Scorpion.

The Sportsman's Verdict
DRACONIEN has had one outing in a French bumper and is worth monitoring closely in the betting on his return from a break, and also having his first start for Willie Mullins. Allardyce has been performing to a consistent level over 2m and this stiffer test is a potential source of immediate improvement. Recent Punchestown second Mighty Stowaway also commands respect, although Henry De Bromhead's new recruit Pallaskenry, a point-to-point winner, is feared most.
