handicap hurdle 2m

Thursday 19th April 2018

Paul Nicholls will aim to kick off the 2018 Scottish Grand National meeting on a winning note, and the master of Ditcheat will saddle Brahms De Clermont in the Friday curtain-raiser, who will aim to use a recent run in a jumpers' bumper as a nice warm-up for this contest.

Donald McCain's Fin And Game has won his last three races, and will be aiming to continue his fine run, while Arthington was unable to land a blow in the Martin Pipe at the Cheltenham Festival, but had previously shown some decent form earlier in the season.

Deyrann de Carjac will receive weight from his rivals, but could be a lively challenger in what is a trappy race to open up the day.
