Decimus has disappointed since winning a Taunton bumper in November but BOLD HENRY was in full command when coming to grief at the last at the last at Kempton last month and should gain compensation today if staying on his feet. Should that not be the case, the four-year-old Kian's Delight could be best placed to take advantage if reproducing the form of his unlucky second at Doncaster in February, though he dropped away tamely at Stratford next time. Black Is Beautiful has a nice pedigree and showed promise in bumpers but finished last on his hurdling debut at Ludlow.
