Race Verdict

Rebecca Curtis boasts a tremendous 30 per cent strike-rate in bumpers and her newcomer CHEAT THE CHEATER makes plenty of appeal on paper. With Tony McCoy on board, he looks set to go well at the first time of asking. Nicky Henderson also has a terrific strike-rate in bumpers and his debutant Whisper commands respect. Bertie's Desire, It's A Mistake and point-to-point winner Al Alfa are worth monitoring closely in the market as support for either of them could prove significant.

Selection: Cheat The Cheater        Danger: Whisper        Alternative: Al Alfa
