Silver Streak (13/8), Western Ryder (3/1), Mohaayed (10/3), Global Citizen (5/1), Pingshou (12/1)

Verdict

Not as strong a race as possibly anticipated by the sponsors but a competitive affair nevertheless. Silver Streak will rate as a most popular option among punters having seemingly gone from strength to strength since winning the Swinton Hurdle over C&D in May. He is the form pick based upon his rock-solid efforts in the Greatwood and International Hurdles (Cheltenham), yet a fraction more value at the odds rests with MOHAAYED. He had the measure of today's rival Western Ryder when winning a Grade 3 at Ascot immediately prior to Christmas and hopefully the forecast combination of overnight rain/sleet and snow will continue to ease conditions in his favour.
