Verdict

ASAID's victory at Huntingdon was franked by the runner-up next time and John Ferguson's four-year-old was far from disgraced in the Grade 1 Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown two weeks ago, staying on strongly up the straight after getting outpaced around halfway. That suggests this stiff track will suit and he should take all the beating. Hinton Indiana looks the pick of the older horses on his victory at Leicester as Moorlands Jack may need another run to put him straight and Shangani has been off the track for a long time.
