A opening novice hurdle with a fair amount of potential on show. Point-to-point scorer Needhams Gap is interesting, as is Timberman who was second on debut to a rival who has since franked that form. Daphne Du Clos must also prove her wellbeing after she flopped on her only start last season, but her form in bumpers suggests she has plenty of ability. However, this looks like a good opportunity for FIDDLERONTHEROOF to gain compensation for his odds-on reverse at Wincanton last time out. His form prior to that when runner-up to Thyme Hill in the Persian War Novices' Hurdle is the strongest on offer and he is well thought of by connections.
  1. Fiddlerontheroof
