It's a big day for the Nicky Henderson team and CHATTERBOX should get them off to a winning start. He beat stablemate and Betfair Hurdle favourite My Tent Or Yours on his hurdling debut over track and trip in December, with Kuda Huraa back in sixth, and that form is head and shoulders above anything else in this that has had a run. Lac Fontana, a winner on the Flat in France last year, could be the danger therefore on his debut for Paul Nicholls. Ballyculla is a points winner but may find this an insufficient test of stamina while Milord may need more time but has been highly tried so far.
