The first race of the day at the Berkshire track sees a quality Novices' Hurdle over 2m3f and we are against the favourite Gallyhill, siding with Midnight River for the Skelton's instead.
The six year old has to be respected dropping back into novice hurdle having ran in better races this season and performing to a high standard.
Midnight River last term ran twice in bumpers and finished third in both his events, placing behind some nice types that left connections positive for his hurdles career.
Skelton sent him to Uttoxeter in October over 2m4f for his seasonal debut and he got off the mark in great fashion, with the first two being well clear of the rest of the field.
He was then upped to 2m5f at Cheltenham in a Novices' Hurdle and he was a good second behind the likeable Does He Know for Kim Bailey, who since went on to frank the form in a Grade Two.
Midnight River also franked the form of that race when winning two starts ago at Leicester and that event set him up perfectly for ta crack at the Grade Two Ballymore Leamington Hurdle at Warwick.
The gelding ran another cracker stepping up to the black type event, finishing a close fourth behind the likes of Adrimel and Mint Condition, who looks solid prospects.
That represents the best form in the race and could be value with a very expensive horse for Henderson sure to lead the market.
