Verdict

This is nowhere near as competitive as the numbers may suggest. Second reserve Magnium would need a market check if he were to get a run. It’s Only A Number was well backed last time and showed improved form so is feared. Prince D’Aubrelle clearly had plenty of ability in bumpers when last seen and he is likely to be popular back from a long absence for his top yard. The selection though is RARE CONOR to make it third time lucky over hurdles. He has run well the last twice and this is a slightly weaker contest in which he can make all.
  1. Rare Conor
  2. Prince D'Aubrelle
  3. It's Only A Number
