In depth

Verdict

Savant Bleu has already won a bumper and a hurdle and should be capable of making his mark over the larger obstacles. Haar has already had 14 starts over fences, however, and lacks a bit of scope while The Rockies looked very one-paced at Ffos Las and may need a stiffer test of stamina than this. Trojan Sun and Vinomore can't be ignored but we'll give another chance to MARCHAND D'ARGENT as his three runs so far over fences have been in handicaps. He may have more chance against these off level weights.
