Down to Devon with Autumn in the air and a top tip for classy trainer Nicky Henderson.
3.42 Newton Abbott - Hooper
Small field races are commonplace now, which can help to weed out the opposition when going for the win.
Nicky Henderson's Hooper looked good value for the victory last time out at Stratford when he unseated Ben Ffrench Davis at the last.
This son of Juddmonte International winner Rip Van Winkle did jump left in the Midlands but was still a length to the good when shipping his rider.
Hooper has won four hurdle races this year over distances between two miles and two miles and three furlongs.
Experienced stable jockey Nico De Boinville gets the leg up in the West Country and it'll be no surprise to see this progressive type's career going North on the way to competing in stronger contests this winter.
