12:10 Rare Edition

An interesting opener. RARE EDITION won in taking style at Doncaster and is selected to extend his unbeaten record under Rules to 4 but there plenty of possible threats in a race long on potential. Nicky Henderson has a very good record in this contest so it would be no surprise to see Iberico Lord step up considerably on his opening effort over hurdles. Rubaud, who like the selection is already a dual winner over hurdles, and Dan Skelton’s Father of Jazz also make the shortlist.

12:45 Champ

CHAMP just held on from Paisley Park in a thrilling renewal of the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury last month and is selected to confirm that narrow superiority as this sharp 3m should suit Nicky Henderson’s strong traveller.

13:20 McFabulous

Paul Nicholls and Dan Skelton have shared the last 2 runnings of this and this may well develop into a straight fight between their pair MCFABULOUS and Galia des Liteaux. The former was impressive when seeing off Thyme Hill at Newbury and is narrowly preferred.

13:55 Constitution Hill

CONSTITUTION HILL denied Epatante a third win in the Fighting Ffith last month and it’s highly likely he’ll prevent his stablemate achieving a similar feat in this contest as he was so impressive at Newcastle and looks a once-in-a-generation hurdler.

14:30 L’Homme Presse

It was some performance from L’HOMME PRESSE to defy a lofty mark of 164 with something to spare in the Rehearsal at Newcastle and he can make it an impressive 7-8 over fences. Charlie Hall winner Bravemansgame, who is bidding to provide Paul Nicholls with a remarkable 13th win in this midwinter highlight, is feared most ahead of Envoi Allen, who got his career firmly back on track when stepped up to 3m at Down Royal last time.

15:05 Don Alvaro

This is a step up in class for DON ALVARO but he jumps well enough to think he can cope and is taken to defy the handicapper again and complete a hat-trick. West Cork acquitted himself well from higher marks than this over hurdles and rates an obvious threat. Balco Coastal didn’t jump well enough on his chase debut at Newbury but there was plenty of strength behind him in the market on that occasion and he could easily prove a different proposition with that experience under his belt.

15:40 Grey Dawning

A very competitive finale. GREY DAWNING was merely pushed out to see off a next-time-out winner from the Nicholls yard over an extended 2m at Exeter last time and an opening mark in the low 120s could underestimate this useful prospect, particularly as this trip should see him in an even better light. It’s likely there’s still a bigger performance in lightly-raced 6-y-o The Bomber Liston so he’s a possible big threat, particularly if the betting vibes are strong. Storm Dennis is third choice.
