Verdict

Nicky Henderson won this race last year so knows exactly what is required so the decision to revert PACIFIC DE BAUNE back to hurdles has to be noted and this very lightly raced sort makes plenty of appeal here on his handicap debut. Also unexposed in handicaps is Malaya for yesterday's heroes Nicholls and Cobden and she too is a huge player. Good flat horse Great Hall went well over hurdles latest and she also enters the equation on the back of that effort.
  1. Pacific De Baune
  2. Malaya
  3. Great Hall
