In depth

Verdict

This appears a good deal easier than the races CONSIGLIERE normally contests. He only found a back-to-form Big Fella Thanks too good off this mark at Wincanton last time and is the one to beat here. Stormin Exit is interesting as he is entitled to improve on his comeback second at Musselburgh but it looks like Prosecco is now in the handicapper's grip and Quite The Man would probably need a career-best to get back on the winning trail in this. Ulysse Collonges won on his UK debut at Wetherby in November but had his limitations exposed in this grade last month and has a bit to prove now. Los Nadis is well treated on his hurdles form and likes it here but hasn't taken to chasing so far.
