Verdict

MALACHITE made a winning debut over hurdles last time out and he can follow up under a penalty in this opening contest. Nicky Henderson is good form (11/40) at present and his son of Malinas can see off Blu Cavalier who carries a double penalty having won two hurdle races previously. El Presente, can finish third in this having filled the same position at Bangor last time out.
