The Sportsman's Verdict
Nicky Henderson took this contest 12 months ago with Claimantakinforgan, who went on to win at Grade 2 level, and the champion trainer saddles an exciting proposition in MISTER FISHER today. The son of Jeremy defied greenness on his debut at Kempton, where looking very strong at the finish to beat Manvers House, before being pitched in at Grade 2 level at the Aintree Festival. He travelled well on that occasion but found the testing ground too much for him, so a line can be put through that effort. He has reportedly done very well during his summer break and should take high rank in this division. Garrettstown created a good impression when winning his bumper at Chepstow in April but may prove better suited by running over further than 2m. The main threats could prove to be Reserve Tank, who showed decent promise when third over hurdles at Chepstow on his debut, and Fibonacci, a decent performer on the Flat who doesn't have many miles on the clock in that sphere and could improve going over timber.
