Verdict

Nicky Henderson's New Horizons and Robinsson, who has McCoy doing the steering, both have National Hunt pedigrees and are interesting debutants in this bumper. Looks Like Magic hinted at ability at Stratford in August but MOUNT HAVEN can make a winning start under Rules. The Mountain High gelding was second in a point-to-point at Oldcastle in April and is a half-brother to winners over hurdles and fences.
