Politologue (5/2), Garde La Victoire (7/2), Forest Bihan (5/1), Gino Trail (6/1), Ar Mad (15/2), San Benedeto (8/1), Vibrato Valtat (16/1), Sir Valentino (16/1)
Paul Nicholls has long had a high opinion of POLITOLOGUE and in receipt of weight from the majority of his rivals he has a good chance. He may well have beaten San Benedeto and Forest Bihan but for falling at Aintree in a Grade One when last seen and here he gets weight from both. Ar Mad is a very high class chaser as a Grade One winner and he could well be the biggest domestic threat to the outstanding Altior this season. He is respected despite top-weight and 11 months out. Also entering the reckoning is last year's winner Sir Valentino who had a fine season and can go well despite being 13lb higher this time round.
