    Verdict

    HEBRIDEAN is the most interesting of the big guns and the former Aiden O'Brien inmate gets our vote ahead of Walkon, Zaynar, Psi and Sainglend. Make no bones about it, this is no penalty kick on the Grade Three-winning colt's hurdling bow. He's joined a top yard and obviously has talent, but the hurdles have to be jumped. Kashabelle and Sainglend have both shown plenty of ability and along with the well-thought-of Walkon are the most interesting of those to have raced. A penalty makes it tough for Walkon but he is highly regarded and should have no problem with the ground. He ran on well on his debut at Huntingdon and it could be that this track may prove more suitable; he's a player. Psi (a promising three-year-old on the flat in France) and Zaynar (same story if somewhat less exposed and has been nibbled at for Cheltenham this week) both need a check in the betting for top stables, however it is Hebridean who can shine.
