Flibinight and Genial Hawkstone are both likely improvers having had just the one run. Whiskey Lullaby has joined Paul Nicholls after finishing second between the flags at Toomebridge in October. Gran Luna represents Nicky Henderson but her pedigree is nothing special, though she shouldn’t be short of speed. Alan King runs three and Tom Cannon rides the twice-raced Didonato, who has shown ability, but preference is for THE KICKING QUEEN. She is out of a mare that has produced winning jumpers with three of her four offspring to so far race, including Grade 2 and Listed winners.
