In depth

Verdict

WILCOS MO CHARA makes his debut under Rules having won a point-to-point back in May. The betting should give a clue to his chances and any strong support would boost confidence. Ollie G wasn't disgraced on his racecourse debut when third at Kelso and he's preferred to Horton. Varene De Vauzelle has placed in a couple of bumpers in France and joined a new yard since while Trackanais, a half-brother to a winning chaser, makes most appeal of the newcomers.
