LITTLE LEGEND won a Folkestone novices' hunter chase last year and has been in excellent form between the flags recently. He's difficult to oppose in this despite conceding 4lb to his rivals. Kriss William may be the one for forecast-backers as he was alongside the eventual winner when falling in a point-to-point last month, though veteran Hurricane Carter has his sights lowered after being pulled up at Sandown last time. Coral Point should be best of the rest.
