Verdict

Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson will no doubt be going head-to-head plenty of times in the months ahead but the Ditcheat handler can come out on top today via ORABORA. Second in a point-to-point last month, the Alflora gelding is a half-brother to two winners on the Flat so shouldn't be found wanting over this shorter trip. Western Approaches has already won a bumper at Bangor but she disappointed when heavily backed at Southwell next time and doesn't look one of her stable's leading lights. Teutonic Knight's third at Lingfield has worked out well but this is his first start since while Douchkirk must carry a penalty for last month's C&D win and Bollistick returns from a short break.
