Verdict

This looks incredibly difficult with experienced and in-form hurdlers, chasers having a run before reverting to the larger obstacles and interesting unexposed types in opposition. HIGHLAND VALLEY fits into the latter category for the Lavelle team that is going well at present and was thought good enough to contest a Grade 1 contest behind First Lieutenant at the Cheltenham Festival in March. The ground is a possible concern but he looks on a really good mark and could be one to follow this season. Los Nadis has turned into a cracking dual purpose sort for Jim Goldie and looks a potent threat. Robinson Collonges, third to Arthurian Legend at Chepstow last time, the unexposed Dynaste and Reindeer Dippin and the in-form Rival D'Estruval are all respected in a tremendous affair.
