Only two runs this season but proved himself better than ever, winning the Hatton's Grace in December before proving himself the best stayer in the business with a decisive success in the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham; hard to oppose here.

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Favourite for this last year (soft) when close third behind Sire Du Berlais and Dashel Drasher; not quite at his best next time when 3l fourth in Grade 1 Champion Stayers at Punchestown; has run just once this season, when showing very classy form to win the Grade 1 Hatton's Grace at Fairyhouse (2m4f, soft) in December for the second successive season; only seven and may be a stronger sort than 12 months ago, which could enable him to come out on top.

T: Gordon Elliott

Classy hurdler over 2m but showed improved form raised in trip this season; beat Klassical Dream and Honeysuckle in the Grade 1 Hattons Grace over 2m4f before hammering Summerville Boy in the Galmoy Hurdle up to this trip; a close third to Sire Du Berlais in the Stayers' Hurdle last time and a serious chance today.

J: Davy Russell

T: Gordon Elliott

9-1 for last season's Champion Hurdle when tailed off and reportedly unsuited by the good to soft going (although he won a Grade 3 on yielding ground earlier last season); 2-2 this term having been upped in trip, winning the Grade 1 Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse (2m3f, soft) then the Grade 2 Galmoy Hurdle at Gowran (3m, soft to heavy); did it easily last time and he's a leading contender granted suitable ground.
