Verdict

FAROUT's Flat ability suggests he can leave the form of his Fairyhouse hurdle debut behind and strike at the second time of asking for Willie Mullins. Like the selection, Makfils reached a fairly useful level on the Flat in France so he's of interest now hurdling for Henry de Bromhead, particularly if the betting speaks in his favour. Estepona Sun and Pretorius are also on the shortlist.

  1. FAROUT (IRE)
  2. MAKFILS (FR)
  3. ESTEPONA SUN
