The market will be the best guide in this field of newcomers but a couple of big yards have entries. The Queen's Jack Frost has a very strong NH pedigree but it suggests that this will be his minimum trip whereas BRICK LAYER is a brother to a Flat winner and shouldn't be short of speed - it's the latter that gets the vote. Minnie Milan should have a future over hurdles while Magnimity is also worth noting for future reference.
