Forecast

Night Edition (5/4), Rhosneigr (7/2), Zarafshan (5/1), Forever Des Long (7/1), Kilpin (11/1), Grand Slam (14/1), Funambule Sivola (20/1), Hello Bob (33/1), Lex Eleven (40/1), Big Data (50/1), Lady Sally (50/1), Giga White (50/1), Memphis Bleek (66/1), Black Kalarosa (100/1), Fayetta (100/1), Letsbe Avenue (100/1)

Verdict

NIGHT EDITION was second in a Grade 2 Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham last month behind a well-regarded sort and David Pipe's runner rates the one to beat on that form, with the probability of more to come. Rhosneigr heads the dangers just ahead of Grand Slam and Forever Des Long while the potential improvers include Big Data and Zarafshan.
