Forecasts

Elimay (5/2), Vision D'Honneur (11/4), Paloma Blue (7/2), Caribert (9/1), Valdieu (11/1), Days Without End (14/1), Crack Mome (14/1), Crack Tiepy (16/1)

Verdict

A trappy race with two of the more interesting runners, Crack Mome and Crack Tiepy coming back from long absences. the latter is the pick of Ruby Walsh, so merits respect, but preference is for VISION D'HONNEUR, who is better than he showed at Cheltenham and is worth a chance in these calmer waters. Paloma Blue has also being plying his trade at a much higher level, and is respected on his return to hurdles.
  1. Vision D'Honneur
  2. Crack Tiepy
  3. Paloma Blue
