Verdict

With four winners in the last six renewals, anything saddled by Paul Nicholls has to be taken seriously. For Two didn't manage a victory for the Ditcheat handler last season but could be a different proposition this time around and it would be no surprise to see him reverse last year's form with Handazan. Swynmor would have won the Grade 1 Finale Hurdle here in January had he not fallen at the last but that appeared to effect his confidence. Leo Luna and Pistol both boasted decent form last season and Another Hero was unbeaten prior to his second at Bangor, though may need further. BOB'S WORLD might be a bit of value in this judged on his second at Sandown in April. He may steady progress last season and still looks to be on a fair mark.
