Paul Nicholls' has trained two of the last three winners and SAPHIR DU RHEU can follow suit. He arrives on the back of a hat-trick, is well clear of the opposition on official figures and can take this as a prep for the World Hurdle at next month's Cheltenham Festival. Meister Eckhart was runner-up in last year's Coral Cup at the Festival but was pulled-up on his reappearance after a bad mistake. He's preferred to Chris Pea Green if putting in a clear round. Kayf Moss arrives in good form with a couple of handicap wins to his name, but he has plenty to find in this company with the remaining pair even harder to fancy.
