ZAIDPOUR is best over this trip as he proved when beating Monksland in the Hatton's Grace here in December. Potential punters will need to forgive a poor effort in the World Hurdle but he's bounced back before and his class can see him through. Dressedtothenines is improving fast and loves this sort of trip and ground though she'll need to make further progress to trouble the selection. Un Beau Matin would probably have won a Grade 2 at Navan in December but for falling two out and again came to grief in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham, though he was held at the time. Si C'Etait Vrai has thrived recently but was a long way behind the selection here in December and the remainder will need to find more.
