The temptation is to to stick with Scottish Champion Hurdle winner Ch’Tibello as he beat a decent field that day off just a 6lb lower mark and is clearly suited by a fast-run 2m, which he should get here. However, the bookmakers look to have his measure, with no bigger than 9/2 on offer overnight, and I’d rather take a chance that the Ayr sixth, JOHN CONSTABLE (11/1 Hills), can reverse the placings. He had finished five lengths in front of Ch’Tibello on their previous meeting at Newbury in November and is 3lb better off with the Skelton runner here. Rated 94 at his peak on the Flat when with Aidan O’Brien and lightly-raced over hurdles after just five starts, there ought to be more to come from the five-year-old and this may have been his target all along, given that his stable has won two of the last three runnings.
