Jasmin De Vaux @ 6/1

WP Mullins' first entry on the odds list slides in as slight favourite with this Patrick Mullins ride. The five-year-old won on debut at Naas in January and is the pick of the Closutton squad.

Jalon D'Oudairies @ 13/2

Slightly behind is this five-year-old who arrives at the Festival after winning bumpers at both Fairyhouse and Leopardstown.

Jack Kennedy's choice for the race, he has been described by Irish trainer Gordon Elliott as a "proper horse".

You Oughta Know @ 9/1

The second WP Mullins-trained runner comes in next after winning by 11 lengths on debut. The six-year-old, ridden by Danny Mullins, ran well at Leopardstown last month to finish second behind Jeroboam Machin, who was favourite for this race before being ruled out through injury.

The Yellow Clay @ 9/1

The five-year-old is Gordon Elliott's second in this race and heads into this one in good form after winning both his bumpers last March.

Finished fourth in the Grade 2 at Leopardstown, three lengths behind You Oughta Know.

Teeshan @ 10/1

This gelding is ridden by Harry Cobden, who arrives to the Festival in fine fettle. Teeshan won on his bumper debut at Exeter last month but is trained by Paul Nicholls, who has had horses place in this race but never won it.

Romeo Coolio @ 10/1

A third entry for Gordon Elliott, this five-year-old is in the mix after his Fairyhouse win, where he was reportedly well short of peak fitness, and will be ridden by Keith Donoghue.

Cantico @ 11/1

Billed as WP Mullins’ top bumper horse before the season, he improved significantly between his defeat at Leopardstown over Christmas and success at Navan last month.

Argento Boy @ 12/1

Next up is this WP Mullins-trained five-year-old, who is half-brother to four previous winners, including Briar Hill (2013).

Scored on his racecourse bow at Fairyhouse in January.

Fleur Au Fusil @ 14/1

Another WP Mullins-trainer runner, the six-year-old won well in a Grade 2 for mares at Leopardstown and arrives here unbeaten so far.

Won by four lengths on bumper debut at Naas in November.

C'Est Ta Chance @ 14/1

Lost narrowly on bumper debut at Navan. Ridden by Daryl Jacob, he's another trained by WP Mullins.

Quebecois @ 16/1

Won on bumper debut for Paul Nicholls at Exeter in December, but form is regarded as nothing special for this five-year-old ridden by Lorcan Williams.

Junta Marvel @ 16/1

The mount of Rachael Blackmore who won this race in 2021 on Sir Gerhard for the yard. Six-year-old WP Mullins-trained mare is unbeaten but won in a weakened Punchestown line-up in the first half of 2023 and doesn't have recent practice.

Sixmilebridge @ 16/1

This five-year-old won at Sandown and will be ridden by Kielan Woods. Chosen one of trainer Ben Pauling, who has a strong team of bumper horses.
