Verdict

Easter Hunt isn't going to get many better chances to break his duck but is very one-paced and won't be much of a price here. Discover Wexford has shown promise in bumpers but she might need the experience today. SPRING AWAKENING was easy to back on his hurdling debut at Down Royal last month but, despite making mistakes, ran on strongly up the home straight and looks to have a future. It would be no surprise if he made things tough for the favourite and he might be the value.
