Yan To Prove His Worth

Alan King's Yanworth has won seven of eight starts over hurdles but came unstuck when favourite for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham Festival. The 7-year-old was undone by quicker rivals over a shorter trip than this and the son of Norse Dancer has always given the impression that he is more of a stayer, which ensures he is a worthy favourite (7/4 with Bet Victor) for this cracking Grade 1 at Aintree.

It bodes well that 12 of the 13 winners of this race since it moved from Ascot have come from the front-three in the betting, which in turn brings us to second-favourite Cole Harden, who can be backed at 11/2 (BetVictor.com).

Warren Greatrex's runner is a tough sort and should enjoy the quicker conditions when putting in a big effort from the front, although the 2015 World Hurdle winner has found big race victories hard to come by of late. The Cleeve Hurdle runner-up finished fourth in the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham last month and could find Yanworth just too good this time.

The Rest

Jessica Harrington's Coral Cup winner, Supasundae (8/1 with Bet Victor bookmakers), takes a step up in class and trip, while course and distance winner, Ballyoptic (8/1), is bidding to bounce back from a disappointing run in the World Hurdle.

Meanwhile, Stayers Hurdle fifth, Snow Falcon (12/1), represents Noel Meade, and Paul Nicholls enters the 2015 Coral Cup winner Aux Ptits Soins (20/1) and the versatile Ptit Zig (16/1), who could come into the reckoning following a break.

Puffin Billy (66/1) makes his return following 721 days away from racing, with Different Gravey (25/1), Taquin Du Seuil (25/1) and Three Musketeers (25/1) completing the line-up.
