The first horse making a smart return on Saturday is Nicky Henderson's Fussil Raffles who last season showed how smart he was when racing four times winning three of them and placing in another.
The four year old started ran in two point to point contests winning and placing in them before being bought by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede and sent to Nicky Henderson.
On his first start for the yard at Kempton in the Grade Two Adonis Juvenile Hurdle he bolted up seeing off a strong field of runners and looked a decent recruit.
He then went to the Punchestown festival in the four year old Grade One hurdle and kept his unbeaten record in tact to land the spoils.
He looks a serious athlete that is still very much unexposed and will be getting his season up and running at Wincanton in the Grade Two Elite Hurdle.
