First run on British shores, but has some smart form on the continent, including win in this grade. Last spotted finished neck-second in Group 2 at Chantilly over this trip in October. Respected.

Dismissed her rivals with plenty to spare in 1m3f Class 2 Handicap around here last month, this is a good deal stronger however.

Cape Cross gelding is still lightly-raced, was held over 1m2f in this grade at Lingfield last month and seemingly has more to find than a few of these.

Fair handicapper, stays further than this, just a second AW start and has to improve to be in the firing line when it matters.

Son of Dylan Thomas, very capable on his say. Never nearer fifth of nine in Listed 1m2f Lingfield race last month AW debut. Back up in trip suits now and cheekpieces return. Could be a player.

Well held on debut for this trainer over a mile around here last month in this grade. Has questions to answer now and this trip is one of them.

Smart on the grass on his day, lacks experience on the AW and that is a worry. Not at his best recently on turf either.

Was returning from a year off when runner-up over C&D last month in this grade. Entitled to be fitter for that run and cheekpieces are added. On the shortlist.

Winner of the Grade 2 Elite Hurdle last month, since run well in tough Cheltenham handicap. Easy winner on sole run in this sphere, much-respected for champion jumps handler.

Runner-up a Chelmsford in a handicap in September but well held two starts since and looks to be swimming against the tide in this line-up.

Forecast

Verdana Blue (13/8), Architecture (5/2), Time Shanakill (11/2), Pipes Of Peace (7/1), Reshoun (8/1), Primero (14/1), Spark Plug (16/1), Via Via (25/1), What About Carlo (50/1), Dance Legend (80/1)

Verdict

Elite Hurdle winner VERDANA BLUE is an interesting contender lining up here for Nicky Henderson. She's very class over timber and could have plenty more to offer in this sphere after an easy win in a Chelmsford novice in September off a layoff. This could be a shrewd bit of placement from Seven Barrows. Architecture is the big danger, having herself returned from a year off with an excellent C&D second in this grade last month. The European raider Time Shanakill is another potentially key player while Spark Plug is class if this trip gets a bit more out of him.
