Verdict

MENGLI KHAN was a top class novice hurdler last term winning the Royal Bond and only going down by 2L in the Supreme at Cheltenham when third. Such form makes him a formidable opponent for these rivals and with a clear round he is expected to win this. Forge Meadow is the danger, Jessie Harrington's smart mare is only rated 5lb inferior and gets 7lb from the selection. Trainwreck should be winning races soon enough and rates best of the rest.
