HENRYVILLE won with plenty to spare at Plumpton on his hurdling bow. He can defy a penalty and go in again here. Sound Investment proved a big disappointment at Fakenham having scored at Taunton before that and is looking to get back on track but Bertie Boru showed some progress when third at Uttoxeter last time and could figure. Royal Guardsman was well beaten at Ascot in February but this is much easier and neither Letemgo or Soixante Six ran anywhere near their bumper form when tailed off on their respective hurdling debuts.
