3.30 DARVER STAR (NAP) can make his stamina tell in the Champion Hurdle. He came home with a right rattle when half a length behind Honeysuckle in the Irish version at Leopardstown last month. He coped with the quicker ground there after a couple of good victories in the mud. He has done nothing but improve and can go close at a big price.

4.10 BENIE DES DIEUX (NAP) takes on Honeysuckle in a great match up for the Grade 1 Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle over nearly two and a half miles.Trained by Willie Mullins, Benie should have landed this easily in 2019 but fell late in the day. She can make amends here in style for Paul Townend.

2.50 THE CONDITIONAL (NAP) ailed to see out Warwick’s Classic Chase last time, but he travelled strongly and, with the runner-up and sixth-home winning since, it could be a race to take seriously. An October win over course and distance on desperate ground lifts confidence and he was an honourable runner-up in the Ladbrokes Trophy. Discorama has been second in a National Hunt Chase and in the conditionals’ handicap hurdle, so has Festival experience and looks to have been trained for today.

Chris Cook (The Guardian)
1.30 Shishkin

2.50 WHO DARES WINS (NAP) is more trustworthy and, as a stout stayer on the flat, ought to do well for this step up in distance. For all his good form, he is 2lb below the rating he had when fifth in the Pertemps two years ago.
