Nicky Henderson has no peers when in comes to winning bumpers and although TONY DINOZZO doesn't appear to be a stable star in the sphere, he could be good enough to get off the mark here. He probably ran into a decent sort in Lemon's Gent when beaten at Ludlow and his overall level of form makes him the one to beat. Chuckery rallied well to take the runner-up spot on his Wincanton bumper debut and should improve for the experience, but Chartplan and Titch Strider would need to improve to figure on the back of placed efforts in small field bumpers.
