Sunshade - 15:15 Cheltenham
Flags: Horse In Focus
Sunshade shaped encouragingly when fifth on her return from 12 months off - during which time she'd had a breathing operation - at Newbury last time, taking a keen hold in the early stages and not given at all a hard time once her lack of fitness began to tell (left behind from two out).
Nicky Henderson's charge is entitled to do better with that outing under her belt, and still relatively unexposed after only five starts over hurdles, she remains potentially well treated from a BHA mark of 132, with the fine record of her yard in this race (won three of last eight renewals) offering hope that this may have been the plan for some time.
