Verdict

YOUNEVERCALL won this race in 2019 and may be able to repeat the feat after shaping better than the distance beaten suggests in the Stayers Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last month. Indefatigable is a likeable mare who ought to give another good account, with Clondaw Caitlin not discounted either, despite having something to find.
