Verdict

MOSCOW MANNON's winning run came to an end in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham but he still finished a creditable fourth. He's clearly the one to beat if taking to hurdles and gets the vote. Killarney bumper winner Aonvarr could go well but the main threat is likely to come from those with experience over timber. Appletime ran well for third at Fairyhouse in October only to disappoint in a handicap at Punchestown last time but Ok Oscar showed little on his hurdling bow. Reafadda's earlier second at Tipperary gives him a shout while The Paparrazi Kid was sent off odds-on favourite for his hurdling debut last month only to finish a well beaten runner-up, though his yard has hit form since.
