Verdict

A chance is taken here on YUKON LIL for champion trainer Willie Mullins. She was well above average in bumpers yet has an out and out jumps pedigree so could be even better now over hurdles. Rhythm Divine has the best hurdles form on offer and will take advantage of any slip ups by the selection. Others with obvious claims include Miss Aloud and City Ballerina.
  1. Yukon Lil
  2. Rhythm Divine
  3. Miss Aloud
