Forecasts

Christmas In April (10/3), Darius Des Bois (7/2), Fizzlestix (8/1), Champagne Chaser (11/1), Cheque En Blanc (12/1), Hit The Highway (12/1), Tudors Treasure (12/1), Puppet Warrior (16/1), Late Shipment (16/1), Burgess Dream (25/1), Boher Lad (33/1)

Verdict

An interesting handicap with Nicky Henderson adding to the puzzle by saddling two runners the handicap debutante Darius Des Bois who may show more stepping into this sphere especially on the back of some wind surgery and the seemingly talented but quirky Christmas In April. Both of those have a chance but CHAMPAGNE CHASER who ran with a great deal of promise last time is preferred back over hurdles with Richard Johnson taking the ride. Tudors Treasure should run a sound race although the handicapper has set him a tough task here while Fizzlestix who escapes a penalty and has the considerable assistance of James Bowen is one to keep an eye on from the two runners that Chris Gordon saddles.
  1. Champagne Chaser
  2. Christmas In April
  3. Fizzlestix
