Formscan By Thomas Weekes - MISTER HOTELIER has some decent bumper form to his name and, if returning to his best form (following a disappointing run in November), has solid enough claims. He already has hurdle experience and may prove too strong for likely favourite Sarabad. Willie Mullins' runner hasn't shown a great deal and while runner-up on his last two starts, the overall value of his form looks a little suspect. That said he has to have claims in this average contest. Akatara is exposed but gets plenty of weight (including her rider's claim) and should place while Barrow Island needs to show more than on his hurdle debut.
