Kensington Art

Former Flat winner Kensington Art remains a maiden after four appearances over hurdles, but he has shown some promise in those outings over obstacles. He finished second behind a smart horse from Philip Kirby's yard last time at Sedgefield (2m4f). The five year-year-old was quite keen at times in that race so it is no surprise to see the blinkers applied on this occasion. He sets the standard and it looks a good opportunity for him.

Henry Sellers

Henry Sellers produced his best performance to date to break his maiden at Punchestown back in May. He stepped up in trip to 2m4½f and had a tongue-tie on, two factors which contributed to the success. His trainer also said afterwards that he appreciated the faster ground. The conditions should all be right for the horse again here in this follow up attempt. He has gone up 8lb in the ratings but he was well on top at the finish last time so there should be more to come from him.

No No Maestro

Fergal O'Brien's chaser No No Maestro has improved in each of his four outings over fences and he got his reward for that improvement when he scored at Uttoxeter last month in a 3m handicap chase. In the early stages of his career, this horse was running over distances which were on the short side for him. He is a stayer who appreciates a stamina test. A second straight success looks likely to come for the gelding as he has only gone up 1lb for his maiden victory.

Miss M

A rest over the summer will have helped Miss M as her form at the back of last season dipped as it had been a busy campaign for the David Pipe's hurdler. The seven-year-old showed in 2020 that she runs well fresh as she recorded back-to-back victories in the early stages of the campaign. This latest mark of 108 gives her a great chance of an easy season success and her first win in a handicap contest over hurdles.
