Verdict

There was a lot to like about the manner in which BALLYBREEN stuck his neck out to win at Hereford earlier this month and, from just a 4lb higher mark, the could still be ahead of the assessor (rated 96 at his best over hurdles so far; runs off 80 here). Arqalina is another that is open to further improvement and would be dangerous to rule out; whereas Kiwi Myth and Big Time Frank (runner up in this last year) also handle this course well and are also worth considering.
  1. Ballybreen
  2. Arqalina
  3. Kiwi Myth
