511-4OR:
7/4

Had wind surgery after being pulled up on his hurdles debut on the spring and appeared to show immediate benefit for that and a tongue-tie, when scoring at Warwick last time. Penalised but looks open to further improvement. Claims.

4/1

Back-to-back soft ground novices' hurdle winner in April and was in the process of bettering that but for a late fall when last seen in May. More needed, but clearly can't rule her out.

410-12OR:
6/1

5-2 and beaten 5L on debut in a Ffos Las bumper in May. Related to staying hurdle success and this trip looks a good starting point over hurdles. Will be well prepared and no surprise if he is a capable recruit.

810-12OR: 119CWS
6/4

Yet to win beyond 2m1f, but gets this trip and returns from wind surgery 5lb lower than when scoring at Wetherby over fences in December. However, not as good in this discipline.

Betting

Forecast

Movie Legend (6/4), General Custard (7/4), Floral Bouquet (4/1), Lomachenko (6/1)

Verdict

The Nicky Henderson team goes into the traditional jumps season in cracking form and it would be no surprise to see Lomachenko make a good debut. However, GENERAL CUSTARD looks to have benefited from wind surgery and could be good enough to defy a penalty. Floral Bouquet and Movie Legend each has a bit to do, but neither is written off.
