In depth

Verdict

Ruacana was just about the best of these over hurdles but has become a little disappointing. Barry Geraghty is on board here, however, and he should go close. Orsippus was also decent over timber but he's another who has rather lost his way over the last year or so. Nicky Henderson has a tremendous strike rate with the few runners he sends to Kelso and MASTER OF THE GAME can enhance his record. The ground here will be perfect for the eight-year-old, who will have been well schooled, so he gets the nod.
