Final preparations are always crucial especially if you are on the road to the festival. Donald McCain was pleased with workout that his Champion Hurdle hopeful had earlier today after racing at Bangor-On-Dee. Last year Overturn finished down the field behind McCain’s other charge Peddler’s Cross and the Irish Maestro Hurricane Fly – this year Peddler’s Cross will be heading elsewhere at the festival leaving the yard’s hopes with the spirited dual purpose front runner. Overturn has had a break and comes into the race of better form this year than last – today’s work out will only make him more competitive again along with what appears to be ever drying ground. There is no doubt that he likes the spring and summer (especially after a rest) – with the weather being positively Spring-like at 33/1 it is worthwhile considering him overturning his odds and squeaking a place. If he can get out in front and dominant he may run the finish out of  many of the others. Hurricane Fly will be crowned Champion again and Overturn’s place competition I should guess will come from Binocular, Thousand Stars and Zarkander.
