Forecasts

Santini (2/1), Robin Waters (3/1), Chef Des Obeaux (7/2), Bekkensfirth (10/1), Boreham Bill (12/1), Bill And Barn (14/1), Nabatean (16/1), Boss Mans Ladder (20/1), Shades of Silver (25/1)

Verdict

Nicky Henderson might have the key to this, with both CHEF DES OBEAUX and Santini representing the yard and preference is for the former, who showed plenty on his bumper debut here and will know a lot more this time around. Santini has plenty of plus points in his pedigree and should make a nice hurdler this season. Bekkensfirth will be a big danger if wound up after a long absence.
