Race Tip

Both BOB OLINGER (2) and IMPAIRE ET PASSE (3) finished second and third respectively behind a Champion Hurdle winner attempting the G1 Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown during February. Preference is for the former who has always set this race as his chief target and handles the likely testing conditions while the latter stayed this trip when runner-up attempting the G1 Hatton's Grace Hurdle in December and rates a huge player once more. LUCCIA (7) went well finishing third contesting the G1 Champion Hurdle and holds chances up in distance. NEMEAN LION (6) could find the frame.
