Fairly useful on the Flat for Andrew Balding and shaped with encouragement amidst inexperience when third in novice at Bangor on hurdling debut. Return to this sort of ground should suit.

Little impact in 2 bumpers for Richard Fahey in early 2020 and only minor promise over hurdles. Unlikely to get involved in this.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

EDINBURGH CASTLE shaped with considerable promise when third in a novice at Bangor 26 days ago and his Flat form gives him scope for improvement, so he's fancied to get the better of Olympic Conqueror and Ambassador, who have achieved a higher level in this sphere than the selection but are much more exposed.

Betting Forecast

6/4 Olympic Conqueror (Ire), 15/8 Ambassador (Ire), 10/3 Edinburgh Castle (Ire), 250/1 Lambristo (Ire), 33/1 Miraculous Getaway (Ire)
