£10,000 Sulamani half-brother to yard's smart chaser On The Slopes. Unsuited by speed test when only eighth in an AW bumper on debut and much more like it when third switched to turf over C&D.

Showed up really well when head second of 8 in bumper at Fontwell (17.7f, good to firm) on debut in September. Similar form when fifth in a deeper race at Cheltenham 5 weeks later.

Forecasts

Shantou's Melody (11/8), Cousu Main (9/2), Sami Bear (5/1), Not Long Now (10/1), Campden Lad (10/1), Samatian (11/1), The Wise Traveller (11/1), Bold Vision (20/1), Red Hot Radish (22/1), Induro De Fontaine (33/1), Hors Guard (100/1), Spacesuit (100/1), Nightvisitingsong (250/1)

Verdict

SHANTOU'S MELODY showed up well for a long way in a better race than this at Cheltenham in October, and though off since, he's certainly in very capable hands. He could be the answer, with Sami Bear the chief threat on form, though point-winner The Wise Traveller deserves a mention.

  1. SHANTOU'S MELODY (IRE)
  2. SAMI BEAR
  3. THE WISE TRAVELLER (IRE)
