Timeform run the rule over the seven runners in the Grade 1 World Series Hurdle...
Quevega has won the last three renewals of this race and a bold bid is assured, but Solwhit is in fine form at present following victories at both Cheltenham and Aintree, and he is taken to end the mare's remarkable winning run...
Fiveforthree is a smart hurdler who won this race in 2009. Lightly raced since, but proved he retains plenty of ability when third to Medinas in Coral Cup at Cheltenham last time.
Holywell landed the Pertemps Hurdle at Cheltenham last month and further progress when second to Solwhit at Aintree last time. No obvious reason as to why he should reverse form here.
Reve de Sivola thrived over hurdles this term, revelling in the mud when winning Long Walk at Ascot and Cleeve at Cheltenham. Respectable fourth to Solwhit in World Hurdle at Cheltenham last time.
Solwhit is a high-class hurdler who has looked as good as ever this term, winning World Hurdle at Cheltenham prior to easily following up in Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree last time.
Whatuthink is a smart front runner when in the mood, as he proved when landing a Grade 2 hurdle at Navan (2½m) in December. Typically in-and-out since, though, and hard to recommend on back of recent efforts.
Zaidpour is a classy hurdler who beat strong field in the Hatton's Grace in December. Runner-up all completed starts since, chasing home Dressedtothenines in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse on latest.
Quevega is a high-class mare who landed her fifth consecutive David Nicholson Mares Hurdle at Cheltenham last month. Has won the last 3 renewals of this race and sure to make a bold bid to make it 4 in a row.
3. Reve de Sivola
Timeform View: Quevega has won the last three renewals of this race and a bold bid is assured, but Solwhit is in fine form at present following victories at both Cheltenham and Aintree, and he is taken to end the mare's remarkable winning run. Reve de Sivola looks best of the rest.
