Very smart hurdler who won this back in 2016. Ran a cracker under a big weight in County at Cheltenham in March but running below form when falling 2 out at Cork in April. Been off since.

Echoes In Rain
Trainer: W. P. Mullins Jockey: P. Townend Age: 5 Weight: 11st 5lbs
Big improver last spring, including a Punchestown Grade 1 success. Better than she showed when 15 lengths last of 3 to Sharjah in Morgiana on reappearance, racing too keenly.
Racing Post Verdict: The logical choice here would be Sharjah who has won this event for the last three years and beat two of these rivals emphatically on his reappearance in the Morgiana Hurdle. However, that race was not run to suit his stablemate ECHOES IN RAIN who was highly progressive last season and could be a very different proposition now if settling effectively.
