THE LOWDOWN

The lucky last of the Festival is a bumper field for the Martin Pipe. Gentleman De Mee earned his first win over hurdles last time out with a classy win at Naas last month and that looks to be the best form of the field. Langer Dan also collected a win last time out to put a poor run of form behind him but that Grade 3 success will stand him in good stead. Another of interest is Galopin Des Champs who was well behind Appreciate It at Leopardstown in a Grade 1 last month but this is trip looks more suited now handicapping.

THE PREDICTION

There are plenty of chances in this final race of the Festival but the pick is Gentleman De Mee to wrap up a superb four days for Willie Mullins. His win at Naas looks to be the standout performance among this field and while others can go close with several having plenty of improvement in them, he can also improve to record a second successive win.
