Torpillo (4/5), Quel Destin (7/2), Fanfan Du Seuil (6/1), Soviet Pimpernel (7/1), Nelson River (14/1), Kaizer (16/1), Havingagoodtime (20/1), Construct (20/1), Effernock Fizz (40/1)

Verdict

With a win already under his belt this term TORPILLO is fancied to land the spoils as long as the ground doesn't deteriorate. He showed good form last term and is marginally preferred. Nelson River was a fine fourth here in the Triumph Hurdle and will have benefitted from a recent spin on the Flat, whiel Quel Destin, fifth in the Triumph having won the Grade 1 Finale Hurdle last term, is very much respected but has to give weight away all round. He ran well though when third on the level at Bath recently. Fanfan Du Seuill is not out of it, nor are Irish raiders Soviet Pimpernel and Havingagoodtime.
  1. Torpillo
  2. Quel Destin
  3. Nelson River
