Verdict

NOW LET GO proved herself a classy horse in bumpers winning twice in four starts during the 2014/2015 campaign (at Carlisle and Punchestown). However, she has clearly had a few issues since then and was returning from an absence of 28 months when finishing a 7L runner up to the Joseph O'Brien trained Valgor Du Roncerary on her hurdles debut here last month (2m). By Flemensfirth, there's no reason to suggest that she'll be unduly troubled by this longer trip, and seemingly only really has Court Artist as a serious threat.
  1. Now Let Go
  2. Court Artist
  3. Vanellope
