Verdict

If GOSHEN was trained by Nicky Henderson or Paul Nicholls he would be a short-priced favourite at this point for the Triumph Hurdle. His two demolition jobs over hurdles have shown him an extremely powerful galloper who should be ideal for the Cheltenham contest. He is fancied here to win and advertise his claims as the best domestic juvenile going into the Festival. With Nordano relatively exposed and Manucci already a victim of the selection, Homer may be the best alternative.
