2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
12/1 winner of last season’s County Hurdle and he backed that effort up when third in the Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle afterwards. This is significantly weaker than the Christmas Hurdle he contested latest; strongly respected on ground that suits.
Just misses top class but has the form to be in the thick of things; 2nd twice in this

Grade 1 winning juvenile hurdler who got back in the winner’s enclosure at Sandown last time out; smart Call Me Lord behind. Will appreciate any further ease in the ground, and connections won this race last year; can chase home Ch’tibello.
Best form so far when winning Listed race at Sandown (2m, heavy); big chance

Has shown modest form in four bumper starts to date, recording an RPR of just 98 when sixth at Newbury latest. Thrown in at the deep end here on his hurdles debut, and it is impossible to see him troubling the best of these.
Bumper form is masses below what will be needed to be competitive here; makes no appeal

Smart dual-purpose performer who won this back in 2018. Has not been seen, however, since finishing a beaten favourite at Newmarket in July 2018. Given wind surgery prior to making his reappearance, but he is entitled to come on for the run.
Big form chance on his win in this in 2018 but 18-month absence has to be an issue

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Has recorded progressive RPR’s in his three starts this campaign, chasing home Thomas Darby in a handicap hurdle at Ascot latest. Now steps out of handicap company for the first time since struggling in a Grade 1 at Aintree last April; needs more.
Improved form in good handicaps in this second season over hurdles; more needed

Zambella
J: Jamie Bargary
T: Nigel Twiston-Davies
Hurdles winner in her native France and she has been set tough assignments in both UK starts to date. Respectable fourth in Listed company at Sandown last time out, but she was still over ten lengths behind Quel Destin there; opposable.
Seemingly well held by Quel Destin on latest Sandown running

Verdict

Quel Destin is respected but the peak form of the normally reliable \bCH'TIBELLO (nap\p is a notch stronger and he is preferred.

Betting Forecast:

7/4 Quel Destin,

9/4 Ch'tibello,

4/1 Song For Someone,

9/2 Elgin,

16/1 Zambella,

200/1 Calgary Tiger
