Verdict

Mitchouka is sure to be a warm order being an interesting French recruit for the powerful Gigginstown House Stud and trainer-Gordon Elliott but a chance is taken with APPARITION who can improve on his third of eight on hurdling debut. Downtown Rebel could hit the frame for trainer Andrew Slattery.
