Race Tip

Owner J P McManus has a remarkably strong hand in the Wednesday feature and, of his five runners in addition to two reserves, TOP MOON gets the nod off a nice racing weight and with Mark Walsh in the saddle. A cosy defeat of Somptueux at Wexford last month was the six-year-old's first win over fences and he might have a big day in him off an 8lb higher mark. The selection finished just in front of The Shunter at the Dublin Racing Festival and is a few pounds better off with that rival, who still looks a big danger after going on to win at Cheltenham and finishing second in a Grade 1 novice chase at Aintree. Darasso has a touch of class and comes into this handicap debut in good form, while Off You Go beat Grand National hero Minella Times in the spring and is another strong contender in the green and gold. Last year's runner-up Royal Rendezvous is Paul Townend's choice from six Willie Mullins runners and he warmed up for this with a win over hurdles at Ballinrobe, while Mitchouka lande
