Verdict

NASHVILLE NIPPER improved when third to a subsequent winner at Huntingdon last time, so has to be considered the one to beat with further progress on the cards. Sammeo offered enough in a Stratford bumper to warrant consideration on this switch to hurdling, while Blackthorn Winter may do better again now he's seemingly on the right path.
