Useful handicap hurdler for Nicky Henderson. Found test inadequate on first outing for new yard at Kelso (2m) last month. Well-made gelding, who should prove too good for his rival on chase debut.

Has completed only 2 of his 6 starts under Rules, again let down by jumping at Huntingdon this month. Drops in trip, but comes with risks attached.

Verdict

Ben Haslam brings former Nicky Henderson inmate CUP FINAL down the A1 from his Middleham base for his first attempt at chasing, having potentially reached the limit of his potential over hurdles. The former Punchestown Festival winner should be hard to beat up against only one rival, Spoilt Rotten, who can keep the selection honest if in the same form as his Leicester second when only half a length behind Bivouac.

Verdict

Useful-hurdler CUP FINAL should prove too classy for Spoilt Rotten, and granted a clear round of jumping, can make a winning chase debut.
