1
711-8OR: 150D

Known as a keen free-running type, yet had continued to progress quickly until paying the price for those forcing tactics in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton on Boxing Day; with no Verdana Blue or Buveur D'Air in the line-up, this is more realistic.

711-8OR: 153D

County Hurdle winner at the Cheltenham Festival in 2018; back to winning ways in a Grade 3 at Ascot (2m, soft) prior to Christmas - the re-opposing Western Ryder finished 3¼L third and is now 4lb better off; solid.

611-8OR: 156CD

Going away at the finish when landing the Grade 3 Swinton Hurdle over C&D in May; has continued to progress (now rated 24lb higher) finding only Nietzche (Greatwood) and Brain Power (International) stronger at Cheltenham so far this season; solid.

911-4OR: 147D

Talented hurdler who enjoyed Grade 1 success in the Top Novices' at Aintree (2m+, good) in April 2017; missed the 2017/18 campaign and only recently returned to action over fences (struggled); reverts to hurdling in an attempt to get back on track.

711-4OR: 145D

Reliable, but has found suitable winning opportunities difficult to come by; 4lb better off with Mohaayed for a 3¼L beating (third) in the Grade 3 Betfair Exchange Trophy at Ascot (2m, soft); also has previous with Silver Streak.

Betting

Forecast

Silver Streak (7/4), Western Ryder (10/3), Mohaayed (7/2), Global Citizen (4/1), Pingshou (12/1)

Verdict

Not as strong a race as possibly anticipated by the sponsors but a competitive affair nevertheless. Silver Streak will rate as a most popular option among punters having seemingly gone from strength to strength since winning the Swinton Hurdle over C&D in May. He is the form pick based upon his rock-solid efforts in the Greatwood and International Hurdles (Cheltenham), yet a fraction more value at the odds rests with MOHAAYED. He had the measure of today's rival Western Ryder when winning a Grade 3 at Ascot immediately prior to Christmas and hopefully the forecast combination of overnight rain/sleet and snow will continue to ease conditions in his favour.
