Timeform on Champ
Vibrance - 18:30 Kempton
Vibrance got off the mark with something to spare at this track recently in a race that looks handy enough form for the grade. James Fanshawe's filly seemingly relished the extra four furlongs and, with the likelihood of more to come over staying trips, she is taken to defy a 5 lb rise and improve her good record on artificial surfaces.
L'Inganno Felice - 14:00 Southwell
L'Inganno Felice underwent something of a resurgence when sent hurdling this year, winning four of his first five starts, but he has not won in this sphere since January 2017 and his last two outings over obstacles have not been encouraging. He was pulled up over hurdles in September before unseating his rider when held on his chase debut last month and, while the handicapper has given him a chance, the percentage call is to oppose him.
Champ - 14:25 Newbury
3 - Nicky Henderson's number of winners in past 11 runnings
Champ won two Grade 1s over hurdles last season and beat Dashel Drasher with a good bit in hand on his chase debut this month. The two meet again here and Nicky Henderson's exciting chaser is expected to uphold the form. He has plenty of scope for improvement and can reach the top in this sphere.
