RANJOBAIE proved there was no such thing as a certainty when making a hash of the last at Leicester but he can make amends by getting the better of Notus De La Tour and Beau Fighter. Jumping has to be a concern for supporters of Nicky Henderson's gelding but the form of his run at Warwick looks even better now than it did at the time in light of the winner's exploits. He was in the process of justifying his position in the market when coming to grief in the East Midlands and has the ability to account for this field. Notus De La Tour appears to be the chief danger on paper as he has plenty of experience over hurdles to his name in France. He was a ready winner at Auteuil early last month and merits respect on debut for his new yard. Myshkin showed some promise on debut, Firedog, Forest Rhythm and Blue Tango are of interest but Beau Fighter could be next best as he makes his hurdling bow for a yard going well. He was a fair sort on the level for Chris Wall and should win races for this yard but he could struggle to match strides with Ranjobaie.
