In depth

Verdict

LITTLE LEGEND has won 10 times between the flags and both starts under Rules. He goes well fresh and can put his experience and likely fitness advantage to good use against the returning Caronhills, who is now a 12-year-old, and Loose Preformer. A former Nicky Henderson inmate, the latter didn't build on his victory in a novice event at Doncaster two years ago though did win over hurdles last season. Schindler's Prince's second to Poquelin at Larkhill earlier this month was a solid effort and he looks best of the rest.
