Verdict

A really competitive handicap hurdle, where the suggestion is to side with the unexposed ANEMOI. The fact that connections choose to go down the handicap route from this mark is hopefully an indicator that the gelding can win from it, but irrespective of that, he is one of the few here who has not yet peaked. Similar can be said of Encore Champs, who is also of interest. Smaoineamh Alainn is not ruled out, with Nube Negra, Fidux and Garo De Juilley also much respected.
  1. Anemoi
