Verdict

This may develop into a straight fight between hurdle newcomers CASTRA VETERA and Royal Illusion. The latter is coming to jumping late in the day but she ran as well as she's ever done on the Flat recently and should go very well but narrow preference is for Castra Vetera who has looked a smart prospect when winning 3 bumpers. Roseys Hollow looks best of the rest.

  1. CASTRA VETERA (IRE)
  2. ROYAL ILLUSION (IRE)
  3. ROSEYS HOLLOW (IRE)
