Denemethy is very interesting if judged on the form of last year’s Irish point win, and he might have bumped into a very good one when second in a Carlisle bumper in the autumn. He is not opposed lightly but LIVIN ON LUCO went close over C&D on his hurdling debut and is given the vote. Ilfu Un Mome has joined Nicky Henderson since his winning Irish point debut and also warrants serious consideration.
Doubts have crept in after Magical Escape’s recent run at Ludlow, Gentleman’s Relish needs to put a Kempton disappointment behind him and House Of Stories (second choice) has to show he can repeat the promise of his first run back from a long absence. Preference is for hurdle newcomer MARVELLOUS MICK who showed plenty of ability when winning his bumper on this course and looks sure to be suited by a test of stamina over hurdles. Broughshane is also in the mix.
James Jet has a good chance of coming further into his own now up again in trip but PULLING STUMPS divided two promising rivals on his second chase start at Newbury recently and there should be more to come from him. So Said I and Great Name That appeal most of the others.
Nicky Henderson’s mare Meadowsuite ought to be capable of considerably better than she showed on last season’s bumper debut and remains an unknown quantity but she’ll need to be useful to beat Dan Skelton’s juvenile KOUROSH, who won easily on his hurdle debut in November and was very much in contention before his last-flight fall in a good race a Cheltenham last month. Steel Ally fluffed his lines at Ffos Las six weeks ago but his run there in November suggests he can feature here.

Pentland Hills proved he retains significant ability when second at Doncaster last month, after a layoff, but LOWRY’S BAR (nap) is unbeaten under rules after three starts at around 2m and seems likely to be seen to even better effect over today’s longer trip. Minella Blueway cruised clear to win a C&D maiden on Welsh National day and is also of significant interest.
In the absence of anything with a watertight profile, another chance is tentatively given to WALKINTHEWOODS. Evan Williams’ 7yo was beaten about 35l when favourite for his last two races but will be hard to beat if able to replicate the form of his big run in defeat at Ffos Las in November. C&D winner Moonlighter is on the downgrade now but ran okay at Lingfield last month and is second choice, while Kings Keeper and Hermes Du Gouet could both have untapped potential over fences.
Danton had an excuse when pulled up at Exeter last month and is of strong interest if judged on his breakthrough win there two starts ago, while subsequent events have shown that Mumbles (second choice) faced an impossible task when second to a huge improver at Ffos Las in November. Kruger Park, Deerstalker and God’s Own Getaway all remain unexposed but perhaps the answer might be HE’S MY SHADOW, who made a bold attempt to dominate a C&D novice from the front last March and could be difficult to catch in this grade if fully tuned up after his layoff.
