IMPULSIVE ONE has shown good progress over hurdles since last seen on the Flat. Nicky Henderson’s charge may well prove ahead of the handicapper back under this code as he debuts on the all-weather. Three Platoon had the measure of Chipiron when scoring over track and trip last month while Just In Time finished in front of Culture over 1m4f here last time and will appreciate this extra test of stamina.
