Verdict

Nicky Henderson boasts a one in three strike rate with his bumper horses here and is likely to have TOUR D'ARGENT fully primed for his racecourse debut. His dam won several times around 1m4f on the Flat in France and the Martaline gelding may have too much speed for most of these. Oscar Flyer is another newcomer with a Flat pedigree while the pick of those with experience is probably Polurrian, who was second to Cinders And Ashes on the all-weather at Southwell last month - the winner was only beaten a short-head in a Listed contest at Cheltenham next time. Milarrow finished ahead of Glassawine on his debut at Exeter but may need more time.
