Verdict

It was a strong Sandown novice in which TIMBERMAN made a promising hurdles debut for Nicky Henderson, and there also plenty of positives to glean from his efforts in jumpers bumpers for new connections this season. He remains open to improvement and gets the nod ahead of Gylo, who was pretty impressive in a jumpers bumper at Newcastle last month. Danger Money is also well worth a second look.

  1. TIMBERMAN (IRE)

  3. DANGER MONEY
