Verdict

ROYAL IRISH HUSSAR beat the re-opposing Fox Norton only a neck on his hurdling bow but has improved since then. He remains unbeaten over timber having landed a Triumph Hurdle trial at Cheltenham last month and is the one to beat. Recent Musselburgh winner, Dispour, is going the right way but has plenty to find with the selection on today's terms, while both Broughton and Zamoyski are even harder to fancy in this company. The German raider Cafe Au Lait finished runner-up at Warwick last month and will need a big step up on that to get the better of Nicky Henderson's charge.
