Last years winner will line up again here off top weight. Soaring Glory has run to a decent level this year, latterly running a three lengths third to Epatante, (a former Champion Hurdle winner) in the G1 Christmas Hurdle at Kempton.
He gave her 7lb there and although the winning distance wasn’t massive, he did look to be well held.
He did have Tritonic back in fourth, and was nicely clear of him.
Back in a graded handicap here, at a course he’s runs well at – he must have a massive chance.
