Verdict

Neither Warren Greatrex nor Nicky Henderson are frequent visitors to Wetherby so previous winners Masquerade and Nesterenko are well worth a second look in this. The latter's latest fourth behind subsequent Festival winner Lac Fontana at Cheltenham is just about the best form on offer. But there is undoubtedly more to come from VILLORESI, who actually led two out before finishing third to Betfair Hurdle hero Splash Of Ginge at Aintree in December. He's had a run on the all-weather since and should be ready for this. Quick Brew's latest second at Carlisle was easily his best run to date while Taunton scorer Flute Bowl gets all the allowances and can't be ignored.
