Verdict
A race won 12-months ago by the ill-fated Fayonagh, trainer Gordon Elliott now aims hurdling newcomer SOMETIME SOON at the prize. He won a bumper on soft going here in February and, while not as good in two more starts, the point-to-point winner was always liable to be best seen once jumping. Jan Maat and The Shunter also make some appeal on hurdles bow while both Tournoi and Ishyaboi could improve their hurdling lots for this drop in distance and worth considering.
  1. Sometime Soon
  2. The Shunter
  3. Ishyaboi
