PreviewsWillie Mullins is two-handed here, as are Gigginstown House Stud. We haven't seen CILAOS EMERY since he finished fourth in the Champion Hurdle for Mullins and stable jockey Paul Townend. The champion jockey again takes the reins here, and his mount ought to be well ready for the task at hand, given that he's won fresh in the past. It's interesting to see the Califet gelding stepped up to this trip, and one couldn't imagine it being too much of an issue. A course winner when we last saw him back in March, stable companion Bachasson is a nice back up for the Closutton team. Of the aforementioned Gigginstown pair, Alpha Des Obeaux won this in 2017. He's ten now though, and needs to step up on recent evidence. Paloma Blue could come forward for the addition of cheek-pieces. He'll certainly need to in order to take a hand.
