Verdict

Another race where trainer-Gordon Elliott holds a strong pair, with preference for the Lisa O'Neill-ridden RAVENHILL, who is winner of three starts over hurdles including when last seen in August, landing a Sedgefield novice hurdle over 2m4f. The nine-year-old can get the better of stablemate Count Simon under the adept Paddy Vaughan and the Henry De Bromhead-trained Daybreak Boy who can be forgiven appearing overwhelmed in the Martin Pipe at the Cheltenham festival .
  1. Ravenhill
  2. Count Simon
  3. Daybreak Boy
