Verdict

A fascinating race. Olly Murphy's BREWIN'UPASTORM has looked better than ever since reverting to hurdles and it's not out of the question that there could still be more to come from him, so he receives the vote to make the breakthrough at Grade 1 level. McFabulous meets the selection on more favourable terms this time and is a big threat, along with Jason The Militant.
