Verdict

It's a concern that the otherwise interesting Lucky Quay sports blinkers for the first time so with that in mind we'll side with SANSILI, although the market will help to solve this puzzle. Peter Bowen has his runners in top form and our pick is a half-brother to the yard's Souffleur, himself a classy hurdler when on song. Sansili ran well in a couple of maidens on the flat but should improve for this switch in focus and gets what must be a tentative vote, with none of these having jumped a hurdle in public. Lucky Quay showed little in a maiden for Walter Swinburn but he's since switched to David Pipe and is related to three-year-old hurdle winner Inchlaggan. Conditions should suit and the market will tell us whether connections expect the headgear to spark a winning debut over obstacles. Henry Havelock isn't certain to stay on pedigree but on flat form isn't far behind our pick and is therefore respected, especially as the yard have a profitable record in hurdles races here. Graham Lee is an interesting booking aboard Mr Mohican and he should have no trouble staying, the concern being his level of ability which so far on the flat looks poor. Another Grand was last seen running in a poor sprint on the flat so he's easily opposed and we'll return to Sansili, who gets the token vote.
