9/5
Very smart hurdler who didn't hold quite the same dominance in this sphere last term but returned with a perfectly creditable third in the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby. Leading claims.

11/1
Smart hurdler who wasn't at his best when last seen 7 months ago but scored on last year's reappearance, so a big effort isn't out of the question.

13/2
2020 Stayers' winner at Cheltenham and, while he went winless last term, he showed there's some life left in him when third at Aintree on return. Return to this trip will suit.

7/1
Smart hurdler who has suspect attitude but and had a couple of these rivals in front of him when fourth in the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby on reappearance. Tried in a tongue tie, now.

6/1
Smart mare who rarely runs a bad race. Got the better of Paisley Park at Wetherby on return, but had a fitness edge that day, and is now worse off at the weights.

11/4
Likeable mare who bolted up in the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham in March, then completed a straightforward task in listed company at Limerick on return. This is tougher, but she can't be dismissed.

Forecasts

Paisley Park (9/5), Mrs Milner (11/4), Indefatigable (6/1), Lisnagar Oscar (13/2), Thomas Darby (7/1), On The Blind Side (11/1)

Verdict

PAISLEY PARK should be fully tuned up after a sighter at Wetherby, so everything is in place for him to land this race for the second time (also runner-up last year). Indefatigable beat the selection last time and, while on worse terms, a bold showing is still expected from her, while Lisnagar Oscar can play a part if he brings his very best form.

  1. PAISLEY PARK (IRE)
  2. INDEFATIGABLE (IRE)
  3. LISNAGAR OSCAR (IRE)
