Ardkilly Witness won a couple of point-to-points in Ireland earlier in the year and was second in a hunter chase at Cork in April. He should be prominent here while Coastal Boy has also won between the flags and will appreciate the step up in trip after finishing third over 2m at Uttoxeter. Royal Native went close in a bumper at Fontwell in august and Queen Of Mantua won over C&D in May, though was tailed off on her reappearance. TIGRESSE BLEUE was a fair stayer on the Flat in France and made a promising start over hurdles at Ludlow in January. She has an absence to overcome but has more scope than a lot of these and can make the most of her mares' allowance.
