Verdict

King Olav has been racing over shorter distances of late but was placed over track and trip back in August. Daring Indian has won over 1m6f but hasn't raced since May and Valid Reason has a shout on his third at York back in October. Where's Susie should have done better than sixth at Lingfield last week and COUP DE GRACE makes more appeal. The latter has been hurdling since scoring over course and distance at this time last year and is taken to defy a 7lb higher mark on his return to the Flat.
