Verdict

Pentland Hills' victory at Cheltenham in the Triumph Hurdle was all the more admirable for the fact he nearly didn't get over the first jump intact. He's progressing quickly and is a key player. Preference is for BAND OF OUTLAWS, also a Festival winner in the Cotswolds. He travelled powerfully and won the Fred Winter with a bit in hand, despite meeting traffic. His trainer boasted such a strong team of juvenile hurdlers this term and he may prove himself in graded company. Stablemate and Supreme fourth Fakir D'Oudairies is not dismissed readily, while the unbeaten hurdler Christopher Wood is clearly talented and can have a say despite rising rapidly in class now.
  1. Band of Outlaws
