Verdict

ERICHT, a smart performer in bumpers, has been highly tried in his two starts to date over hurdles. Third in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham on his debut over timber, he was a shade disappointing when only third at Newbury last time having been well backed. However the first two, Colour Squadron and Montbazon, look decent prospects and Nicky Henderson's gelding should make in third-time lucky today. Cold Knight has hinted at ability and Cousin Khee wasn't far behind the selection in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham last March though needs to step up on his hurdles form to date. Hogan's Bridge and Hollow Heartbeat may also be worth noting with a view to the future.
