Verdict

Getting 7lb from Special Mate, who hasn't raced since winning on his debut at Ffos Las almost a year ago, BRIGADIER MILLER can round off what should be a successful day for the Nicky Henderson/Barry Geraghty partnership. The grey, a £19,000 purchase in 2010, made a promising start when fourth to Trespasser at Taunton last month. Little Chip was second in a point-to-point in Ireland in October and may prove best of the rest as well-bred newcomer Smart Viking was sold for only £4,000 at the Ascot sales in June last year.
