Paul Nicholls' bumper runners have a surprisingly modest record here but Alto Des Mottes has already won and been placed in the French provinces. Adeupas D'ycy had a run at Chateaubriant in September, where he stayed on nicely after missing the break, while Flamenco Lad was second on his debut over track and trip in October and Kibo was third at Huntingdon last month. L STIG is a half-brother to a Flat and hurdles winner and from a yard that's going well. He could be a bit of value in a potentially informative bumper, though fellow newcomers Kingfisher Creek and Sea Tiger are worth monitoring for future reference.
