PreviewsNational Hunt/dual purpose trainers have an excellent record in this race and Nicky Henderson, who struck in 2011 with Veiled, saddles the very interesting VERDANA BLUE today. The eight-year-old has a Grade 1 hurdles victory over dual Champion Hurdler Buveur D'Air under her belt, amongst a number of cracking efforts in that sphere, and she was a fair fourth in the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes when last running in this code 13 months ago. Her latest start was a fourth-placed effort behind subsequent 2020 Champion Hurdler Epatante over timber at Kempton in December so everything looks in place for a huge run here, with Ryan Moore booked to ride. Amongst the dangers are recent Haydock scorer Moon King and Land Of Oz, who made a pleasing reappearance at Chelmsford.
