Verdict

Beckhani is making his chasing debut but looks a better bet than stablemate Atriptomilan. Jamie Snowden is also doubly represented and his mare NIKI ROYAL has already won a point-to-point. She landed a maiden hurdle at Towcester in January and, having carried penalties in novice hurdles since, will think she has been let loose getting weight from all but one of her rivals today. Another mare, Brockwell Park, also has claims but Starsky Des Mottes is starting to look a little exposed and there's no guarantee that Shannon Spirit will enjoy going back over fences. Winning hurdlers Caunay and Latest Trend may do best of the rest.
