Saturnas
R Walsh & W P Mullins

11/8 5/4

Handicap: No

Going: Soft (Soft to Heavy in places)

Another race in which Willie Mullins has made his own in recent years - winning the last four renewals - and, saddling six of the 10 declared runners this time around, there is a fair chance that the prize will go back to Closutton again. Bacardys was one of the best bumper horses around last season and did well to win his maiden hurdle here over christmas considering he twisted a shoe during the race, while Bunk Off Early and Chateau Conti made favourable impressions when winning first time out in this sphere and both are respected. However, SATURNAS is the clear standard-setter having built on his Royal Bond second to win the Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle over 2m here and it comes as no surprise to see Ruby Walsh pick him over some talented stablemates. Brelade chased home the favourite last time and should give another good account, while runaway Fairyhouse scorer Barra might outrun her forecast double-figure odds.
