Tetlami looks primed to run a big race on Sunday
Nicky Henderson sends just two runners to Musselburgh's valuable meeting on Sunday and TETLAMI is the headline runner as he has the monumental task of taking on Overturn in the Scottish Arkle.
The gelding was fortunate to survive a bad blunder when winning on his debut but has schooled beautifully since and can hold his own against Overturn.
SENTRY DUTY wouldn't win an award for consistency, but has indicated in his recent work that the engine is still firing.
FORGOTTEN VOICE was bogged down in unsuitably testing ground on his return to action at Kempton and is far better than that run indicates.
The level of his work at home stamps him as smart, as you might expect from a former winner at Royal Ascot, and he has the option of next week's Betfair Hurdle at Newbury.
ERICHT is another that hates to be confronted with cut in the ground and showed his liking for a switch to Polytrack when producing a decisive burst to land a 'jumpers bumper' race at Kempton last time.
That win is thought to have bolstered his confidence and he will soon be back in action after a pleasing breeze midweek.
MALT MASTER has worked as if the recent win he gained in a novice chase has given him a confidence boost and although no star, he can do well campaigned round the smaller tracks.
DARLAN seems in tip-top order for Monday's Listed hurdle at Doncaster and served notice he is a worthy Champion Hurdle contender with a pleasing piece of strong work the other day.
