Verdict

CALIPTO is a leading fancy for next month's Triumph Hurdle as his victory here in November has worked out well. Both the fourth and sixth have won since and Paul Nicholls' is likely to be a short-priced favourite for this despite giving weight to older horses. Justification won twice on the Flat in Ireland and has his first start for Gary Moore. He should be winning soon judged on his third at Thurles while Seedling was only beaten a length over track and trip on his second start over timber. Little Jon, second at Southwell in December, looks the pick of the remainder.
