Flat winner in France and has found just one too good on each of his 2 starts in this sphere, latterly forcing Mr Adjudicator to dig deep in the Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown. Merits respect.

Placed in two hurdle races from two starts. Beaten 1 1/4l by Mr Adjudicator when second of 5 at 3-1 on his latest outing in a Grade 1 hurdle race in the Group 1 Tattersalls Ireland Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown over 2m (soft) last month.

Decent handicapper on the Flat and has quickly made up into a smart hurdler, making it 2-2 in this sphere with a battling display in a Leopardstown Grade 1 last month. Very much one to consider.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m on soft ground. A winner at 3-1 in a Grade 1 hurdle race in the Group 1 Tattersalls Ireland Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown over 2m (soft) on his latest outing last month, beating Farclas by 1 1/4l.

Useful Flat performer who has looked the part in winning a trio of juvenile hurdles at Kempton, particularly in the Adonis last time (more slick in the jumping department). Leading contender.

Won on his latest outing in a Grade 2 hurdle race when 10-11fav in the Group 2 Betdaq Adonis Juvenile Hurdle at Kempton over 2m (good) last month, beating Malaya by 7l.

A high-class renewal and marginal preference is for an Irish raider, but probably not the one that most would think. SALDIER, the mount of 2016 Grand National-winning jockey David Mullins, was all the rage heading into his hurdles debut at Gowran Park and certainly didn't disappoint, beating his closest rival by an impressive 10-length margin. He showed an ability to power through bottomless ground that day and, although he lacks hurdling experience, he should be streetwise enough having had plenty of runs on the Flat in France. His stable have two other strong chances with runaway Fairyhouse scorer Stormy Ireland and Grade 1 winner Mr Adjudicator, but home challenger Apple's Shakira rates the biggest threat. Nicky Henderson's filly has won all three hurdle starts at this track, loves soft conditions and won't give up her unbeaten record without a fight. Redicean and Farclas, who wears a first-time tongue-tie, add further spice to the contest.

BLEU ET ROUGE's chasing campaign may have been one of disappointment last term but he will have gone into notebooks aplenty for his Betfair Hurdle second behind Kalashnikov last time. The winner boosted the form by running a big race in defeat when second in the Supreme on Tuesday and, with slow ground known to suit, he could remain competitive despite an 8lb rise. Spiritofthegames was third behind the selection at Newbury and has place possibilities, though bigger dangers may be unexposed Grade 3 winner Sandsend, Duca De Thaix, who is fitted with a first-time tongue-tie and commands respect under Jack Kennedy, and Whiskey Sour, a Grade 1 winner at Leopardstown who lost little in defeat when fourth behind Samcro latest. Drying ground would bring last year's Fred Winter winner Flying Tiger as well as Chesterfield and Ivanovich Gorbatov into the equation. Chesterfield is nicely treated on his victory in last year's Scottish Champion Hurdle while the latter, the 2016 Triumph winner, has slipped to a workable mark too.
