Verdict

Guillaume Macaire hasn't sent recent Pau winner Vizir D'Estruval over for the good of his health but he does have to concede weight to several potentially promising juvenile hurdlers in this. MASHAARI, a real stayer on the Flat, wasn't beaten far on his hurdling debut in a Grade 2 at Doncaster and is clearly held in some regard by Brian Ellison. He gets the nod while Hidden Justice is one of a number of interesting newcomers with the lightly-raced former Dermot Weld inmate Three Kingdoms and Donald McCain's Welsh Bard also on that list.
