Verdict

Celestino has raced twice over hurdles in France and could prove popular having his first start for Paul Nicholls. But FINAL COUNTDOWN makes more appeal in this having finished second in both starts over timber including a good effort at Wetherby last time. A winner on the Flat at Beverley, Blue Atlantic makes his hurdling bow along with Zarawi, a half-brother to a hurdles and chase winner.
