Verdict

BILLAWAY currently heads the market for the showpiece event in this sphere at Cheltenham following an impressive success at Down Royal, and he's fancied to go in again despite plenty of stiff opposition. His new stablemate Dragon D'Estruval looks a fascinating recruit to hunters and It Came to Pass is hard to rule out with the benefit of a recent run.

  1. BILLAWAY (IRE)
  2. DRAGON D'ESTRUVAL (FR)
  3. IT CAME TO PASS (IRE)
