Verdict

Some promising sorts on show but PIPESMOKER sets the bar high and is taken to open his account after fine placed efforts here and at Ascot last season. Presentandcounting also has much better days ahead of him so is fancied to chase home Nicky Henderson's useful prospect, while exciting bumper winner Champagnesuperover is much respected on his hurdling bow.
