Verdict

Last month's Fakenham scorer MAKARI gets 7lb from dual C&D winner Robbie and that should be enough for Nicky Henderson's gelding to double his tally over hurdles. He's also much preferred to the frustrating Crystal Swing while Listen And Learn was well beaten on his hurdling debut at Wincanton and may need more time. My Inheritance could go well, however as he looked a decent prospect in bumper wins at Ffos Las and Newbury before finding the company too hot in a Grade 2 at Aintree in the spring. He probably has more scope than Minella For Party and the others.
