Verdict

Emma Lavelle's impressive bumper winner HOI POLLOI was unable to get the job done when well-fancied on his hurdling bow at Hereford in November, finding just one too good. With improvement on the cards, he can go one better here. Nicky Henderson's hurdling debutants always warrant the utmost respect here but Gallyhill may have to settle for silver on this occasion, ahead of Minella Tara.

  1. HOI POLLOI (IRE)
