Verdict

The ground may be softer than ideal for Jacqueline Coward's mount ALFOISIN but he's the one to beat here if reproducing his form between the flags last spring. French Canadian has been in good form in point-to-points already this year and will be a danger while Current Exchange can't be ignored. He's already been placed over fences under Rules, though did disappoint when pulled up at Chaddesley Corbett in December. It's difficult to get too excited over the remaining quartet.
