A strong renewal of the Lanzarote Hurdle this year and I believe it can go the way of Oscara Dara, who was a shade disappointing on his chasing debut on his seasonal reappearance. The obstacles appeared to be the biggest problem on that run and back over hurdles a much better showing is expected. He had some very useful hurdle form last year including when winning at Punchestown and when fourth at Aintree. With the run expecting to bring him on and the better ground to suit he is likely to go very close for leading connections.
Pete The Feat has shown remarkable progress since joining Charlie Longsdon and he can take another step towards top class company by landing the Classic Chase at Warwick. He is versatile regarding the ground and the trip suits so there is little reason to expect anything other than a big run.
