Verdict

Not much strength in depth here and NUBE NEGRA, who won on his debut and was not far off the pace in the Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham last time, should prove tough to beat. Bambys Boy has clearly had some problems but there was some encouragement that he retains ability on his Catterick reappearance run and with Richard Johnson up, he could be set to pick up some money. Emell can probably get competitive at some stage and could chase them home, while Ingleby Hollow could also get involved.
  1. Nube Negra
