Trainer - Nicky Henderson
Jockey - Nico De Boinville
Shishkin is the current market leader that looks to be a superstar for Nicky Henderson and this season has shown raw pace that cant be overlooked.
He fell on his hurdles debut this season which came at a massive shock to many but in a run we can put down to a blip he got back to winning ways at Newbury, exploding near the finish to bolt up.
He was stepped up in trip next time out at Huntingdon and still showed how much pace he possess again hacking up and beating a decent horse in second.
Henderson does not have a great record in this contest only winning one of the 32 he has had horses entered but that should not put you off with Shiskin being one of the stand out runners he has had for a while.
