Verdict

THOMAS DARBY won what looked a decent Cheltenham maiden hurdle last time out earning 25/1 quotes for the Supreme Novices Hurdle. It is too early to be thinking of him in those terms but he can take another positive step here and remain unbeaten. Didtheyleaveuoutto was value for more than his winning margin at Fakenham and the way he travelled should stand him in good stead in this stronger race. Highest Sun bolted up in his lone hurdles race in France and is in the 'could be anything' bracket so can't be ruled out.
  1. Thomas Darby
  2. Didtheyleaveuoutto
  3. Highest Sun
