Today's Good ThingThursday 8-04-21
Adagio has been a massive success story this season, bought out of a claimer in France before Grade 1 success at Chepstow and finishing runner-up in the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham last time. He looks sure to give another good account, but it might pay to side with the freshness of MONMIRAL. Paul Nicholls’ charge has been primed for this assignment since beating Nassalam by seven and a half lengths at Haydock in February (Adagio beat the same rival by two and a half lengths at Chepstow in January) and he may have too much boot for his main rival around here. Paros, representing the stable that have won the last couple of runnings of this contest, might prove best of the remainder.
