This could be a good opportunity for SUPERVISOR to finally open his account. He showed promise over hurdles without winning but has improved since going chasing. He was an eye-catching third at Uttoxeter on chase debut where he was probably too keen in hindsight. Down in trip slightly he got even closer at Chepstow last time and probably bumped into quite a nice horse in Enormouse. His stable are amongst the winners now and he is open to improvement on return. Inflagrante showed potential chasing home Ballyglass at Uttoxeter but was heavily beaten when last seen and his hopes will be pinned on improving now going chasing. Crystal Moon is likely to make a chaser and might emerge as a greater threat. On The Platform shaped as though he needed the run on return at Uttoxeter and should build on that here.

Beaten out of sight on the Flat at Doncaster just last month it was quite the surprise to see NEMEAN LION run away with it at Hereford on hurdles debut last time. He really was quite impressive slamming some decent horses. The second Light Em Up Nigel has solid form to his name and it looked no fluke. He is obviously open to improvement and if improving may well be capable of making it 2-2 over timber. Hullnback made a winning start under Rules at Chepstow and bumped into the promising Pikar at Chepstow last month so looks the danger but does need to improve. Lookaway was an expensive purchase but his debut over hurdles at Warwick was disappointing and he has a bit to prove. Moonlight Spirit won at Carlisle on his only run over hurdles and he is interesting too but it is a bit concerning we haven’t seen him since.
