CHOISIR BREEZE, Addison de Witt and Zepnove are the trio for the shortlist and the vote goes to the first mentioned. The selection hails from a yard in good form and he has shown respectable form so far in his two runs over hurdles. This is a little easier than the race he contested last time and as he remains unexposed he might be capable of opening his account. Addison de Witt looks the main danger as he was in good form prior to a below-par effort at Perth last month. Tony McCoy is an eyecatching jockey booking and this is not a strong race so it would not be a surprise to see him bounce back. Zepnove is a likeable filly and she has been in good form of late. She won a maiden hurdle in decent style last time and although this is tougher, she could be open to improvement. Cornish Castle was a fair sort on the flat and he was still in contention when he fell on his debut over hurdles at Sedgefield last month. He could be worth another chance, but the vote goes to Choisir Breeze.
