Bobtail and hurdling recruit Norphin have shown nothing in their careers to date and Zero Visibility was beaten a distance on his hurdling debut after landing a point-to-point. Sequoia Forest was a 66/1 chance when an early faller at Towcester so this should rest between Danisa, a winner on the Flat in Germany who has shown a glimmer of ability for David Bridgwater, and NATHANS PRIDE. The latter just gets the nod as he won two bumpers in Ireland and hasn't really had a chance to show his true worth over hurdles.
