Verdict

Nicky Henderson won this a couple of years ago and his mare Forever Present will be fancied, despite racing for the first time in almost a year. But there are also possibilities about Mr Cardle, second in a couple of bumpers so far, and last month's Wincanton fourth Audacious Plan. Winged Crusader should improve now facing a set of hurdles but Sand Artist makes his racecourse debut. THEATREBAR has plenty of stamina in his pedigree and has been doing his best work at the finish in bumpers. He should be in his element over this trip and can make a winning start to his hurdling career.
