Three lengths separated Coeur Sublime and Gardens Of Babylon when finishing second and third in the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham in March and both have been given time to get over those exertions. They look closely matched on paper but Gardens Of Babylon has been the more consistent of the two thus far and should be capable of reversing the form. He also had the measure of Way Back Home at Punchestown on New Years Eve, however the Padraig Roche runner has since notched back-to-back victories over course and distance, on both occasions accounting for short-priced, highly-fancied favourites, the latest of which came in a Grade 3 contest in February. He looks capable of further improvement and as a result is taken to gain victory here today.
