Verdict

Capital Force represents last year's winning trainer and was going well until tipping over on his debut over fences. On hurdling form he has plenty to find with TOMBSTONE who represents the trainer/jockey combination who landed this in 2013. He looks the pick of these on hurdling form and has been long considered a smart prospect when going chasing. He performs well when fresh and is preferred to Bamako Moriviere. Willie Mullins' charge has not looked a natural over fences as yet but appeared to be getting the hang of things last time until putting in a stride too many at the last. A clean round under a similarly positive ride would make him hard to beat, given his fitness advantage, but he looks too risky at present.
  1. Tombstone
  2. Bamako Moriviere
  3. Capital Force
