Christmas Hurdle (Grade 1) 2m Preview Christmas Hurdle (Grade 1) 2m

If his profile is anything to go by, Chapel House is likely to cut out the pace. However, how long he can stay there is arguable. Perhaps Sametegal will take over when he capitulates. The race may be decided by who settles and jumps best out of The New One and My Tent Or Yours. Past evidence suggests the former may settle the best; however, his jumping last time out was clumsy at times. I feel Sam Twiston-Davies will go for home turning into the home straight, in an attempt to steal a march on his rivals. Having reviewed My Tent Or Yours at Newcastle, I feel he has grown up and learnt to settle. Given the main weapon in his armoury is a turn of foot, that may prove the decisive factor. 7/1 to win here and at Cheltenham would be a useful starting point in an ante-post portfolio.
