Forecasts

Ashutor (6/4), Dieu Benisse (2/1), Genius (5/2), Good Man Jim (8/1), Cooling (33/1), Go As You Please (33/1), Mrsgrey (50/1), Win My Wings (50/1), Bigchextocash (50/1), Zaydanides (50/1), Agent Westy (66/1), Shotgun Sally (100/1)

Verdict

Trainer Nicky Henderson has a 30% strike-rate with his hurdlers here and DIEU BENISSE gives him a good chance of improving on that percentage. She came down at the last when chasing down multiple Listed winner Posh Trish at Wincanton on Boxing Day and a repeat of that showing (without the fall) will make her hard to beat here. Ashutor is an interesting newcomer who showed good form on the Flat in France and he’s respected along with Genius who showed ability on his one hurdles start so far. Most of the others will be better off in handicaps with two of the most likely projects in that sphere being Go As You Please and Mrsgrey.
  1. Dieu Benisse
  2. Ashutor
  3. Genius
