Verdict

ERICHT could round off a successful afternoon for the Nicky Henderson yard as he made his rivals look very one-paced when coasting to victory at Huntingdon last time. Providing he handles this softer surface, he looks the one to beat. Following a promising debut at Ascot, Balding Banker won by 10 lengths over C&D in November and is open to further improvement, but Bygones In Brid and Peckhamecho have more to do than when scoring on debut and Divine Folly's Taunton win hasn't been franked. Four-year-olds Jumps Road and Oscar Flyer were both in the frame on their introduction, however, and could challenge for a place again getting plenty of weight from their elders.
