Tenor Nivernais rather lost his way over hurdles last season and didn't do much better over fences on his reappearance at Haydock. He's probably best watched until showing signs of a revival while a similar comment applies to Pere Blanc following a long absence. MALT MASTER was sent to Punchestown for a valuable novice hurdle in April and only found one too good. His pedigree suggests the switch to fences will suit and Nicky Henderson's five-year-old can score at the first time of asking though Granville Island should be monitored for future reference and One In A Milan should also have a future over the larger obstacles.
