Talented sort who has never looked a natural over fences but stayed on well to get the better of Enrilo at Chepstow on reappearance. That horse has won since but he's not an obvious type to follow up.
Pretty useful hurdler who jumped soundly when making a winning start over fences at Chepstow in October, with L'Air du Vent back in third. Concedes a penalty but has enough to uphold the form.
No impact in a couple of bumpers and unlikely to feature switched to chasing after 10 months off.
Progressive staying hurdler last season who came up short upped in grade at Doncaster when last seen 10 months ago. Bred to make a chaser but might need this first experience.
Big-money buy after winning Irish point and off the mark at the third attempt over hurdles in novice at Chepstow 10 months ago. Type to do better as a chaser, so not ruled out.
Ex-pointer who drew a blank over hurdles but upped his game when third to The Wolf in a novice at Chepstow on chasing debut. 5 lb better off with that rival and open to improvement.
€38,000 3-y-o, Milan gelding. Half-brother to 5 winners, including useful hurdler/smart chaser Toubab and winning hurdle/chaser at around 2¼m Narock. Off mark in points at sixth attempt (Mar 7).
L'Air Du Vent (2/1), The Wolf (9/4), Fado Des Brosses (4/1), The Mighty Don (9/2), Eva's Oskar (12/1), Milanford (66/1), Botus Fleming (500/1)
THE WOLF landed what strikes as a strong novice chase at Chepstow on his first go in this sphere and, despite a penalty, he's fancied to follow up at the likely expense of L'Air du Vent, who was an encouraging third in the same race. The Mighty Don can pose a threat if his jumping holds up.
