The second Grade One of the afternoon sees the 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle and nine decent youngsters are set to run but we can't get past the favourite Pied Piper.
Having been a fair horse on the flat for John Gosden, really coming across as a mud loving animal producing his best work in tricky conditions, he also did the same on stable/hurdles debut at Punchestown for Gordon Elliott.
Taking on the smart type Vauban for Willie Mullins, he handled the heavy ground well to see him off by a length.
Facing a different test at Cheltenham in January when running in a Grade Two event on good ground, he went on to shock many by bolting up by nine lengths, hard held under a great ride by Davy Russell.
Last seen back at Cheltenham for the festival he finished a narrow third behind stablemate Fil Dor and winner Vauban who reversed the form.
He ran a cracker in behind those horses and with that being the best form on offer, he should go close once more.
Brazil does look the danger having won the Boodles in gritty fashion but we are sticking with Pied Piper who is rated 1lb officially higher.
