Verdict

CHATHAM STREET LAD and The Shunter are two of the most progressive horses this season, recording easy wins in Cheltenham handicaps among their combined 9 victories. The former appeals as being the pick of the weights back hurdling so gets the vote. Of the rest, Cape Gentleman has a bigger performance in him, while Sayo shaped well in the Coral Cup.

  1. CHATHAM STREET LAD (IRE)
  2. THE SHUNTER (IRE)
  3. CAPE GENTLEMAN (IRE)
