Shaped as if this step up in trip would suit when finishing 15L fifth in a Carlisle bumper over 2m1f on debut in March. Interesting to see how he fares on his debut over obstacles.

Career best effort came when finishing 25L eighth over 2m on soft ground here last time out. More needed if he's to take this contest.

Well held in two novice hurdles at Hexham so far this spring and likely to be of more interest once tackling handicap company.

Betting

Forecast

Champ (1/14), Court Dreaming (8/1), Templenaboe (9/1), Storm Nelson (14/1), Moores Novelty (20/1), Solway Storm (28/1), Black N Blue (33/1), Espoir Moriviere (40/1), J And M Greengairs (50/1), Goliath (50/1)

Verdict

CHAMP sets the standard on form and he can get off the mark in this opening maiden hurdle. Trainer Nicky Henderson is in good form at present and his charge is taken to get the better of Court Dreaming who should appreciate this step up in distance on hurdling debut while Templenaboe can take third.
  1. Champ
  2. Court Dreaming
