Verdict

PILEON wasn't beaten far in decent looking novice hurdle at Cheltenham on hurdling debut last time out and he can register his first victory over obstacles by taking this eight runner event. Malystic, the sole penalised runner in the field looks capable of taking second spot while third can go to Alph who showed better form prior to unseating due to malfunctioning tack on his msot recent start.
  1. Pileon
  2. Malystic
  3. Alph
