In depth

Verdict

Himalayan Express has questions to answer at present but Swallow Delight was third over 2m4f here last month and Fairymount could figure if fully wound-up. I'M SO LUCKY must go close if a second between the flags in January has blown away a few cobwebs. He was a high-class 2m chaser with David Pipe in his younger days, winning a Grade 2 in 2010 and finishing third to Sprinter Sacre in the Game Spirit a couple of years ago. Devon permit holder Les Jefford is a shrewd operator at this level so Delta Borget could reward each-way support.
