His Nibs is likely to be all the rage here after a debut hurdling win at Folkestone last time over a furlong further. That success proved that he can both hurdle and handle soft ground and he certainly looked the type to progress. If he does not succumb to the dreaded 'bounce' factor then he should give them all plenty to do here. However, we will take a chance with Tip Kash. A Market Rasen winner on soft ground on his hurdling debut last month, he was then last of four at Leicester next time, when he was reported to have lost his action. Dropped a handy 6lbs and with Tony McCoy on board, provided there are no doubts about his wellbeing he can return to winning ways here. Cho Polu has finished second twice from four starts, including last time out when six lengths adrift of Dumaran at Warwick. The handicapper looks to have treated him fairly based on what we have seen and if first-time blinkers do the trick then he should not be far away. Kadito has gone up 16lbs for two wins in small contests at Hereford and Warwick in the past six weeks. This looks a tougher assignment. However, his low weight means he is not without a chance, though his only previous start on soft ground was not very encouraging.
