Verdict

Odagh Odyssey gets the confident vote with It's Definite and Allerton Boy looking the main dangers. The selection was a good second behind Supreme Dawn last time out under similar conditions, and with the drop in trip sure to be in his favour he is taken to score. It's Definite was a fair sort on the flat, but although he has travelled well in his races over hurdles to date he finds little off the bridle and looks one to oppose in what looks a straight match-up with the selection. Allerton Boy is from a yard in form and he is sure to have come on for his debut effort over hurdles. However, like the remaining runners, he will need to better his best to trouble the principles and we will stick with Odagh Odyssey as the one they all have to beat.
