Aspire Tower and Aramax are sure to be popular in the betting for the Leopardstown 13:10 on Boxing Day, however, Wolf Prince offers a significant danger at double-digit odds.
The newly bought Gavin Cromwell horse finished third behind Aspire Tower but was given a very soft ride. He since improved to win at two-miler at Fairyhouse in very heavy going by 14 lengths.
He jumped less than perfectly that day and Cromwell will have worked on the horse’s hurdling technique. Should he get round cleanly he should improve greatly under a very shrewd trainer.
