Verdict

HINTERLAND is impossible to oppose in this opener as he quickened nicely off a strong pace to win a Grade 2 over C&D last month on his first start for Paul Nicholls when Jackies Solitaire was back in fourth. The third, Secret Edge, won easily next time so the form has a solid look about it. Another French import, Tango De Juilley, has his first run since July but the lightly-raced Canna is interesting as his recent second at Gowran was a big step up on his hurdling debut at Cork and Highly Efficient was a decent sort on the level in Ireland and has now joined a leading NH yard.
