Verdict

All eyes here will be on MOLOTOF as he makes his debut over the larger obstacles. Nicky Henderson's grey was a high-class novice hurdler last season, winning a Listed contest at Haydock in November and following up in a Grade 2 at Ascot. He is impossible to oppose if his jumping proves up to scratch. Ballygarvey has already won a point-to-point but is likely to do better over further while the once-useful Gloucester has had his problems lately and is jumping fences late in life. Bally Legend should win races once he's had a bit of experience, however, and Changing Times was second at Carlisle on his chasing bow, though is another who may this a bit sharp.
