In depth

Verdict

There's just a chance that the extra half-mile will suit the relatively unexposed Newton Abbot third CHAPELLE DU ROI and this won't take much winning. Himrayn, second twice at Newton Abbot recently, hasn't managed a win over hurdles in 16 attempts but Gwili Spar has claims on his latest third at Ffos Las and Knockgraffon Lad arrives off the back of a couple of placed efforts at Worcester. Flicka Williams has the potential to be better of these but has his first start since November last year.
