After a cracking sixth in the Irish Grand National last time out, Off You Go is off an unchanged mark for Charles Byrnes.

The step back in trip should play into his favour and he’s a sizeable enough price given how well weighted he looks.

Off You Go has some solid chase form to his name, including beating the subsequent Grand National winner Minella Times

He won his only previous start at this track as a hurdler back in October and track history is always a boost in these races.

At Leopardstown, he beat the Grand National and Topham winners so an 8lb rise since may not stop him if he’s on his game.
