Ferguson targets perfect Finale

John Ferguson has two entries as he seeks another victory in Saturday's Future Champions Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow.

Ferguson sent out Ruacana to win the Grade One heat last term and has the ex-Flat pair, who both won on their National Hunt debuts, in the mix this time.

Nicky Henderson relies on Kentucky Hyden, who suffered a surprise defeat at Cheltenham when last seen, while Willie Mullins could send over Aintree Listed winner Gitane Du Berlais.

Le Rocher has only run in France to date but could represent Nick Williams, with Paul Nicholls' French recruit Solar Impulse, who accompanied Big Buck's in a recent Exeter gallop, in line to make his first British appearance.

The 14-strong list is completed by Arty Campbell, Baradari, Cadoudoff, Chocala, Sirop De Menthe, Stephen Hero, Vandross and Violet Dancer.
