Verdict

Luggers Hall and Rayadour have both been hurdling and the former has the best previous form on the Flat. Bin Manduro and El Massivo showed a glimpse of promise over shorter trips on their respective debuts and should finish closer but this could be between the newcomers. The Ballydoyle-owned Magical Kingdom is related to three winners and any significant support should not go unheeded but FEDERAL BLUE gets the nod. Mark Johnston has won two of the four previous renewals of this including with a debutant Queen Of Denmark last year and his Elusive Quality colt may be also be good enough at the first time of asking.
