Verdict

THE BIG DOG can build on a promising maiden hurdle effort at Leopardstown last month when the Peter Fahy-trained six-year-old was headed narrowly on the run-in, going down by a head. Voix Des Tiep looks a solid option to cause the most problems for the selection and can prove to be the biggest danger. Kalum River and the Gordon Elliott-trained Rakhine State can battle for the remaining minor honour.
  1. The Big Dog
  2. Voix Des Tiep
  3. Kalum River
