Verdict

Having been lightly campaigned since starting with a bang last summer, BANBRIDGE reaped the rewards to add a Cheltenham Festival success to his CV when landing the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham 3 weeks ago. With this Grade 1 looking a sub-standard renewal, Joseph O'Brien's charge can cap a fine first season hurdling. Gelino Bello remains capable of better now stepping back up in trip so he's put forward as the main threat, ahead of the unbeaten Skytastic.
