Verdict

Honour System won in France and Dubai on the Flat but hasn't shown a great deal so far over hurdles. Cape Explorer can be excused his run in the Triumph Hurdle, however, as he was only beaten a neck here on his hurdling debut. But the vote goes AAZIF, who is surely good enough to win a race like this on the evidence of his third in a well-contested handicap at Ascot last month when a number of previous winners were in arrears. It's more difficult to make a case for any of the remainder.
