The four-year-old is trained by Paul Nicholls and this trainer has already won this race twice with Fadalko and Sanctuaire, with his latest charge being available at betting odds of 11/2 when finishing fourth in the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, with this rewarding each-way punters.

Ajero is another interesting runner and he’s won his past four encounters, with the Kim Bailey-trained horse having won his past four races and many customers will be looking to place their horse racing bets on a selection that is currently available at betting odds of 10/1.
