In depth

Verdict

BELLE DE FONTENAY has won twice over hurdles and should handle the Polytrack. With her mares' allowance, she is fancied to get the better of No No Charlie who won a Fontwell bumper in May and was taking on a very smart novice in Taquin Du Seiul on his hurdling debut at Uttoxeter in October. High Samana has the past form to figure but lacks a recent run and Dollar Bill didn't show much on the Flat before winning a maiden hurdle on very soft ground at Folkestone in November. Ex-pointer Beforeall may need further but was only beaten half-a-length in a bumper at Fontwell in November.
