I had David Pipe’s Champers On Ice down as one of my horses to follow this season, so it was disappointing to see him well beaten at Cheltenham on his reappearance. The stable runners generally struggled at that meeting so his distant second to runaway winner Shantou Village can be upgraded and this afternoon’s 2m4f novices hurdle (3.15pm) looks an easier assignment.

However, with the stable still not firing on all cylinders, I’m going to take him on with Ben Pauling’s BALLYHENRY. The winner of both his starts in bumpers last season, he has reportedly schooled very well over hurdles at home and is considered the stable’s brightest prospect for novice hurdles this term. Pauling, who is in only his third season of training, is quickly making a name for himself and his runners have been tremendous form of late. All of which points to a big run from the selection and he may well be able to floor the Pipe-trained favourite.
