Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A few in with a shout but KAP AUTEUIL showed a gutsy attitude to make it 5 wins from his last 6 starts and get up late in the piece at Fontwell last month. He can defy a subsequent 4 lb rise in the weights and continue on his upward trajectory. Foxboro probably would've won if not for a late error at Wincanton last month so he's a big threat, along with recent hurdles scorer Champagne Court.

Betting Forecast

5/1 Foxboro (Ger), 16/1 Twenty Twenty (Ire), 3/1 Champagne Court (Ire), 8/1 Falco Blitz (Ire), 13/2 Fanzio (Fr), 14/1 Lock's Corner (Ire), 3/1 Kap Auteuil (Fr)
