Verdict

Champagne Agent has been placed in five of his eight starts over hurdles, only finding one too good on four occasions. It would be no surprise to see him finally get off the mark here but he's hardly a reliable proposition given his record and there remain doubts about his stamina over this trip. KASHLINE may represent more value as he'll certainly stay having already won over 3m between the flag. He was only beaten a length-and-a-half on his debut under Rules at Navan. Band Leader didn't run badly on his hurdling debut over 2m at Thurles and is also worth a second look but the others have something to prove.
