Verdict

A winner twice in decent company for Nicky Henderson, it’s a worry that his first start following a lengthy absence is in a seller. Floating Rock has also changed stables since a poor run when favourite for a Huntingdon handicap but he should figure in this grade. Skeaping was no match for The Twisler at Fakenham but that was a better effort. LARCH HILL was on the retreat when falling over fences at Carlisle but should fare better with that run under his belt on this easier track.
