In depth

Verdict

With several of these newcomers representing powerful NH yards, the betting should prove an accurate guide. Paul Nicholls runs the French-bred Very Noble and he will be near the head of the market while Western Jo looks the pick of Philip Hobbs' pair on breeding and jockey bookings. David Pipe saddles three and we fancy the superbly-bred DOCTOR HARPER, a son of Presenting, to come out best ahead of Bois Des Aigles and Milor De La Borie and land this. Fighter Jet is also feared but Such A Legend will probably do better over further and with a set of obstacles to negotiate.
