Verdict

Likely to be an informative contest with smart hurdler THE WORLDS END of particular interest. A Grade 1 winner as recently as December 2019, he's a very classy hunter recruit and given he took pretty well to fences as a novice in 2018/19, he's the one to beat. Highway Jewel receives weight all round and her point form suggests she's useful, while Vinnie Lewis will be suited by a slog.

  1. THE WORLDS END (IRE)

  3. VINNIE LEWIS (IRE)
