In depth

Verdict

Not the easiest of starts though very few of these have any real form to recommend them. Mister Nibbles most certainly does having won two bumpers and as he's out of a winning chaser in France jumping hurdles shouldn't be a problem. PUMBAA is also a winning bumper who has the experience of a run over hurdles behind him so he gets the nod. His second to the well supported Band Of Blood at Limerick was very promising and he can go one better. Winning point-to-pointer Top Cat Henry showed potential on his hurdling bow at Downpatrick and can get involved but the market is best watched for any possible improvers.
