Verdict

Recent results show how hard this race is to solve and that favourites do not fare well. That being said DIVIN BERE is taken to continue what is already proving to be a brilliant Festival for his yard. He was weak in the market before his Huntingdon defeat of Master Blueyes. That rival was strongly fancied and has gone on to develop into a leading contender for the Triumph Hurdle. The fact that Divin Bere looked and ran as though he would improve for the run augurs well for his prospects given that he was set to receive 15lb from that same rival in this. Master Blueyes' trainer Alan King is well represented and Dino Velvet could prove the pick. His second to Don Bersy is good form and he looks the ideal sort to be suited by his race. Paul Nicholls has an outstanding record in this and Dolos looks the pick of his runners.
  1. Divin Bere
