This race has gone the way of some top class horses in recent years, but PONT ALEXANDRE (13/8, 888 Sport) could be the best for some time if he can live up to his lofty reputation at Prestbury Park.

Willie Mullins’ ultra-talented five-year-old has only run three times over hurdles, but connections of the horse are already confident they have a superstar on their hands and it isn’t hard to see why.

A thirteen length Grade One success at Navan and an eleven length victory at Leopardstown this season could not have been achieved in more impressive fashion and he hasn’t needed to put anything like his best foot forward so far this year.

Mullins’ confident in the youngster is infectious and, Hurricane Fly aside, he believes he could be the best hurdler he has ever trained.

That is likely to be a view that strikes fear into followers of The New One (5/1, Ladbrokes), Taquin Du Seuil (5/1, Ladbrokes) and Rule The World (6/1, Ladbrokes) who have all been massively impressive so far this season.

Of the trio, Taquin Du Seuil looks the biggest threat to Pont Alexandre and Jonjo O’Neil’s horse looks more than capable of giving the market leader a race on Wednesday.

Nick Wilby’s selection – Pont Alexandre (13/8, 888Sport)
