Verdict

VERDANA BLUE has a fine record over this course and distance, claiming this prize in 2018, and conditions look perfect for the former Christmas Hurdle winner to make a bold bid here. She has been in fine form on the Flat this summer, placing at Royal Ascot and in the Ebor at York, and could prove tough to beat reverting to timber. Silver Streak won this 12 months ago and the admirable seven-year-old could be the one to capitalise on any chinks in the selection's armour, while Diego Du Charmil is a solid operator, who switches between fences and hurdles with ease, and can't be ignored considering the form of Paul Nicholls.
