The final Grade Two of the day is the Albert Bartlett River Don Novices' Hurdle over three miles and Unanswered Prayers for Chris Gordon could be tough to beat.
Being seen in two bumpers last term and running to an average level he has massively improved for the step over hurdles.
Making his seasonal debut in October, he won well over two miles, beating a nice type for Dan Skelton who has since franked the form.
Stepped up to 19f at Warwick he finished first past the post was demoted to second in the stewards rooom, still running to a high level.
In November he took on Grade One Challow Hurdle winner Stage Star and finished a fair second behind him with the Paul Nicholls runner obviously franking the form since.
Unanswered Prayers, did the same last time out on his first try at 2m5f, giving his best run of the season to beat another nice type for Nicholls at Wincanton.
He looks a stayer in the making and should go well.
