Verdict

FLETCHERS FLYER's seasonal reappearance was encouraging and he looks sure to come on for that run. He's already proven himself to be a useful performer over the larger obstacles with a good win at Punchestown last year and that's sets a solid standard. Arpege D'alene is likely to be of warm order but may be unsuited by the conditions while Flintham may have more to give over the larger obstacles after a promising return to this sphere last time. 1. Fletchers Flyer 2. Arpege D'alene 3. Flintham
