Can Nigel Twiston-Davies claim the finale at Worcester today?

The aforementioned Trans Island son won starts at Aintree and Wincanton, respectively, before chasing home an unbeaten sort in a Listed contest at Newbury.

He was only ninth in the Champion Bumper but that was evidently a strong Grade 1 and this looks a much simpler task on his first start in this sphere in what looks a two-runner affair with bookmakers.

NB: CORRAN CROSS | 2:13pm Lewis Rally Sport Another Kind Of Horsepower Handicap Chase

The son of Doyen won his last two starts for Denise Foster and has now be transferred to Richard Bandey, making his first start at this trip under rules.

He won his point, however, so that should suit and his opening mark on British shores of 124 looks lenient enough.

His transition to fences at Downpatrick could not have gone any better back in August and he could be worth chancing against some more exposed rivals here.
