Verdict

The talented NEXT DESTINATION made a cracking start for Paul Nicholls when runner-up in a Grade 2 hurdle at Wetherby and, with the promise of more to come switched to chasing, he boasts excellent claims despite being rather thrown in at the deep end. Kalooki is an obvious danger on the back of his ready success at this course earlier in the month.
