Verdict

It was no surprise to see DARVER STAR struggle back in this sphere recently, in what was a strong renewal of the Punchestown Champion Hurdle won by the redoubtable Honeysuckle. His rivals here, talented though they are, all have something to prove for one reason or another and Gavin Cromwell's stable star should prove very hard to beat. Scarpeta and Darasso can fill the places.

  1. DARVER STAR (IRE)
  2. SCARPETA (FR)
  3. DARASSO (FR)
