SHISHKIN made amends for falling on his hurdling bow at Newbury when slamming a useful type of Ben Pauling's over the same C&D by 11 lengths. Nicky Henderson's gelding proved his versatility on that occasion, with that performance coming on heavy ground, and he is expected to showcase his credentials towards the spring festivals. Shan Blue acquitted himself well when third in a Grade 2 at Warwick and he appeals as the main threat on paper, with both Hang In There and Pacify carrying penalties.
