Formscan - JOHNNY BLUE, who cost 70,000 euro as a three-year-old, has a likable enough pedigree to suggest that Nicky Henderson has plenty to work with going forward. The gelding is a half-brother to Mister Hotelier, who won over both hurdles and fences in Ireland, and it would be no surprise to see him primed to make a successful racecourse debut. His stablemate, Military Mistress also warrants a betting check, while Thirtyfour Thirty has a solid jumping pedigree and is another notable debutant.
