A good renewal of this Grade 1, with a plethora of talent on show including Summerville Boy
who won a Supreme Novices' Hurdle. Nube Negra
has made an impressive start to his chasing career, and despite the marked rise in grade, he would be dangerous to dismiss with the speedy nature of this track likely to play to his strengths. Despite blowing up two starts ago, Torpillo
bounced back in good style when making a winning chasing debut, and he receives weight all round. However, the selection is GRAND SANCY
who makes his chasing debut in a Grade 1, but was a 152-rated hurdler. If able to translate that ability to fences he could spring a minor surprise.
