SHERNANDO won a maiden hurdle at this track last month and Nicky Henderson's charge looks up to giving weight to a couple of less exposed rivals. The latter includes Mcllhatton, placed at Doncaster last time and having only his third start over timber, while Minellaforlunch showed some promise when fifth on his hurdling debut at Ascot. The remainder have plenty of catching up to do if they're to figure and Native Colony could prove best of those. He finished third over these hurdles back in October and is preferred to points winner, Now Then Charlie, who has failed to complete either start under Rules.
