Verdict

ALLAHO produced a top-class performance when an all-the-way winner of the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and the speed he showed that day suggests he can be as effective over this shorter trip, so he's preferred to stablemate Chacun Pour Soi, who is also capable of top-class form. Nube Negra was arguably unlucky not to win the Queen Mother, so must be feared also.
