Verdict

Paul Henderson had a nice winner at Cheltenham on Friday and EASTER IN PARIS could be another for the yard if ready for this first run since April. The mare has performed consistently for the stable since moving from Ireland last winter and has already proved her ability around this track with a couple of runner-up efforts. She's on a feasible mark, is at home over hurdles or fences and handles the forecast quicker ground. Cheque En Blanc ran a good first race for Gary Moore when third here last month and has to be a lively threat for a yard with such a good record at this track, whilst Cry Wolf would have a shout if building on an improved effort at Market Rasen last time. Dahills Hill is also shortlisted on his first run for this yard after leaving Ireland.
