Despite tackling hurdles for the first time and reappearing following a lengthy absence, both SHARENI and Stand To Reason are likely to be at the forefront of the betting in this maiden hurdle. Neither are likely to fail through lack of fitness given connections and the latter won three times on the Flat, though does seem to prefer softer ground than he'll get today. The former was placed three times on the level in France last year and is the type that Paul Nicholls normally excels with so he gets the nod on this occasion. Red Seventy was fifth on his hurdling debut at Taunton and looks the pick of David Pipe's trio with Mr Fickle arguably best of the rest.
