Alan Thomson fancies a Willie Mullins chaser to plunder the feature event at Downpatrick on Sunday.

IFYOUCATCHMENOW (3.10) can provide Willie Mullins and Paul Townend with another big prize in the Ulster Grand National at Downpatrick.

The gelding was ridden by an inexperienced pilot earlier in his career but has since benefited from more professional handling, especially when scoring over today's 3m 4f trip at Punchestown last month. Cheb de Kervinious was three lengths adrift in third but enjoys an 8lb pull in the weights, which makes it a tight call. Last year's winner Amaulino had a spin over hurdles at Navan earlier this month and is a big each-way price if in the same mood as 12 months ago.

VINNIE IS BUSY (1.40) won a Limerick bumper on debut in January and probably improved again when a respectable fourth to Gordon Elliott's Farouk D'Alene in a hot event at Naas last month. Charles Byrnes sends him over hurdles with a winning chance. All About Joe was well held by warm favourite Eklat De Rire at Thurles but it was 25 lengths back to the third.

MOMUS (2.10) is the outsider of Gigginstown's two runners but first-time blinkers could do the trick at an each-way price. Momus was beaten on the nod by Opposites Attract at Down Royal in January and the winner has since acquitted himself well in third behind the Willie Mullins-trained Francin. Davy Russell gets the leg up on Gigginstown's better-fancied The Very Man, a Naas scorer two weeks ago. Road To Dubai, formerly a winner on the Flat in the UK, will appreciate the drying ground, but Wajaaha is a more serious contender after landing a gamble with some authority at Leopardstown almost three weeks ago.
