Verdict

A hot novice hurdle which may produce one or two contenders for next month's Cheltenham Festival. Scarlet Dragon, Humphrey Bogart and Carntop were each more than capable on the Flat and could be good enough to make a winning hurdling debut, but in MONT DES AVALOIR they meet a rival with high-class novice form under his belt. Destrier is feared as he bids for a hat-trick, while Global Citizen, Michael's Mount and Shoal Bay have claims along with French import Ballywood.
  1. Mont Des Avaloirs
  2. Destrier
  3. Global Citizen
