Verdict

A small field goes to post for this hurdle and it looks another straight forward opportunity for Hirapour to extend his winning sequence. The gelding from the Ian Williams yard won in impressive style when defeating Algarve at Aintree last time and with conditions again in his favour he is impossible to oppose. Tramontano rates the main danger he was a fair fifth in a grade 3 Hurdle behind Altay last time and a reproduction of that would see him go close but his best efforts have come with plenty of cut in the ground. Eyze looks outclassed.
