Willie Mullins has a fantastic record in this having sent out four of the past five winners but his big hope Cash Back falls down this year for not winning last time out.
That negative also accounts for Fakir D’Oudairies and Al Dancer.
You need to have run at least three times in the campaign before heading to Cheltenham and that spells bad news for Global Citizen and Brewin’upastorm.
A run within the past two months has been another important factor and that’s a worry for fans of Esprit Du Larhe and Put The Kettle On who have been off for longer.
Maire Banrigh and Our Merlin are too low in the official ratings to be carrying off an Arkle Trophy.
That leaves us with Rouge Vif as the best outsider on the trends but it’s clear that NOTEBOOK is the one to beat.
He ticks all the boxes and won the best trial for this — the Irish Arkle at Leopardstown — last time out.
