Verdict

NIKI ROYAL won a maiden hurdle at Towcester last week on her first start for Jamie Snowden with the rest nowhere. She can shrug off a penalty and follow-up in this. Xaarcet also arrives on the back of a win in better company at Exeter and he should be in the firing-line once again while both Prince Pippin and Man Of Leisure ran well in heavy ground on their latest starts and may figure. Next To Nowhere won a chase at Catterick at this time last year but hasn't raced since and Union Saint makes more appeal after last month's second at Wincanton.
