Verdict

If fit and ready first time back after missing last season RUTHENOISE looks the one to beat here. Nicky Henderson is more than capable of getting one ready first time up and based on his ninth placing in the Ballymore Properties Novice Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival when with David Pipe he looks the form choice. Swiss Art looks a danger after back to back scores and is open to more improvement on handicap debut while Dontpaytheferryman looks off a fair mark after two good efforts over fences.
