Verdict

So Young never started above 11/4 in his nine starts after arriving from France before finishing tailed off in the World Hurdle at Cheltenham. He may well have found that 3m trip too far and it wasn't his true form though he was a very long way behind VOLER LA VEDETTE, who won this a year ago and is impossible to oppose. Colm Murphy's brilliant mare gave Big Buck's an almighty scare at Cheltenham and, as she invariably wins first time back after a break, she looks too good for these rivals. Maller Tree and Mae's Choice are progressive young hurdlers but, like the lightly-raced Prima Vista, face stiff tasks against the two main contenders.
