Sporting Life Preview

Blazer has been all the rage for this since it was confirmed that Barry Geraghty, who will be riding at his minimum, will be in the saddle. He has a penalty for a recent win at Leopardstown but wouldn't have got into the handicap without it and should go close to giving Willie Mullins, who has five in the race in total, a first success in Europe's richest handicap hurdle. Modus was surprisingly beaten at Taunton in December but had excuses and it would be no surprise to see the smart novice bounce back in his first handicap. Philip Hobbs holds a strong hand with last year's runner-up Cheltenian, course and distance winner Sternrubin - who is bidding for a four-timer - and last year's Swinton Hurdle hero War Sound while Forest Bihan is one of those that will benefit from the likely fast pace. Agrapart could be a decent each-way bet but AFFAIRE D'HONNEUR also has plenty of scope. Though raised 8lb since a fast-finishing second at Kempton on his UK debut, Harry Whittington's maiden still looks well treated off a mark of 132 and no-one rides this course better that Gavin Sheehan.

Oddschecker Verdict

Last year's Champion Bumper runner-up Modus hasn't done a great deal wrong in three starts since being switched to hurdles and he warrants plenty of respect on his handicap debut, but the fact Barry Geraghty gets off Paul Nicholls' high-class six-year-old to ride BLAZER looks a tip in itself. The Willie Mullins-trained gelding won a lot easier than the three-and-a-half length margin suggests on his handicap debut at Leopardstown last week and he is 7lb well-in under a 5lb penalty. Having only seven days to recover would have to be a slight concern, but he looks well ahead of the handicapper and his trainer wouldn't be sending him over the Irish Sea if he hadn't been showing all the right signs at home. His stablemates Kalkir and Dicosimo also hold claims, while Ladbroke Hurdle winner Sternrubin looks to be improving all the time and is as tough as old boots. Other interesting players include Starchitect, who might be well handicapped on his first start for David Pipe.

Prediction: 1st Blazer, 2nd Modus, 3rd Sternrubin
