The Sportsman's Verdict
Mohaayed and Bridget Andrews combined to take this last season, but return off a stone higher mark which makes life much tougher, so it may be Ch'tibello who carries the main Skelton hopes in a race they have a fine record in. Willie Mullins' Whiskey Sour was third last year and is only 3lb higher now so may fare best of those returning from the 2018 renewal, while he also saddles Mr Adjudicator, who was second in last year's Triumph Hurdle and was last seen chasing home Champion Hurdle winner Espoir D'Allen in a Naas Grade 3. However, preference is for ECLAIR DE BEAUFEU, who has won two useful contests this season before finishing fourth behind a progressive handicapper and some former Festival winners in his first handicap appearance at Leopardstown. He could be ahead of the assessor and the pick of the Gordon Elliott trio in this. Leoncavallo would have a chance if repeating his Galway Hurdle third, with Taunton winner Capitaine and Imperial Cup pair Monsieur Lecoq (second) and Storm Rising (fourth) others capable of getting in the mix.
