Verdict

With a 10lb claimer booked, Nicky Henderson's VERSATILITY makes considerably more appeal than the Paul Nicholls-trained Wincanton scorer Saint De Reve. The selection was a beaten favourite over this trip at Kempton last month but that form has substance with the winner Boss Man Fred doubling-up at Southwell and the second Ofalltheginjoints finishing fourth in the Grade 2 Winter Novices' Hurdle. His main danger could emerge from the foot of the handicap where Ashfield Paddy lurks. Raised just 5lb for a recent Haydock (2m7f) handicap debut win, it's also perfectly relevant to acknowledge that the talented Jonjo O'Neill Jr takes over in the saddle.
  1. Versatility
