Verdict

This revolves around the fitness of KASHMIR PEAK, who landed a Grade 2 hurdle at Doncaster in December and ended the campaign in the Triumph Hurdle. He's much better than a 78-rated performer on the Flat and hopefully John Quinn will have him right. Aquilonius is very versatile and followed a close second over 1m2f at Nottingham with a victory over 2m at Lingfield. He looks well enough treated to go well as does Zenafire, who came good with a smooth victory at Haydock. Villa Royale is 10lb higher than her victory at Catterick in May though she still managed a very good effort at Yarmouth a month later.
