Showed a really willing attitude when landing a big-field maiden on hurdles debut at Punchestown in December. Better form when runner-up twice since, but he does have 6 lengths to find with Sir Erec.

SIR EREC was a very classy operator on the Flat, winning at Listed level and finishing a creditable third behind Stradivarius on Champions Day in the Long Distance Cup. He's left a favourable impression on both starts over timber, travelling and jumping well when beating Tiger Tap Tap by a neck in a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown in December and then confirming his superiority over the Willie Mullins-trained runner when making all in the Spring Juvenile Hurdle (with Gardens of Babylon second). Despite stepping on a stone last week, he has been deemed fit enough to declare and as such, he rates the one to beat. Although being something of an unknown on his first start in the UK, Paul Nicholls' Pic D'Orhy is worth considering in view of the high-class form he's shown in France. His stable's hand is strengthened further by the reliable and consistent Quel Destin, who holds Adjali on their Grade 1 run at Chepstow in December and boasts winning course form, having landed the Triumph Trial here back in November.

Mohaayed and Bridget Andrews combined to take this last season, but return off a stone higher mark which makes life much tougher, so it may be Ch'tibello who carries the main Skelton hopes in a race they have a fine record in. Willie Mullins' Whiskey Sour was third last year and is only 3lb higher now so may fare best of those returning from the 2018 renewal, while he also saddles Mr Adjudicator, who was second in last year's Triumph Hurdle and was last seen chasing home Champion Hurdle winner Espoir D'Allen in a Naas Grade 3. However, preference is for ECLAIR DE BEAUFEU, who has won two useful contests this season before finishing fourth behind a progressive handicapper and some former Festival winners in his first handicap appearance at Leopardstown. He could be ahead of the assessor and the pick of the Gordon Elliott trio in this. Leoncavallo would have a chance if repeating his Galway Hurdle third, with Taunton winner Capitaine and Imperial Cup pair Monsieur Lecoq (second) and Storm Rising (fourth) others capable of getting in the mix.

Didn't need to be anywhere near best to land the odds at Kelso in November but has struggled in a couple of Grade 2s here since. Back from wind surgery.
