Harefield (11/8), Santo De Lune (5/2), Destined To Shine (4/1), Born For War (8/1), Fairway Freddy (18/1), Shanroe Saint (20/1), Cheer's Delboy (25/1), General Bux (50/1), Echnaton (66/1), La Fille Francaise (100/1), St Merryn (100/1), Absolutely Frankie (100/1)

Verdict

An interesting opener and one where SANTO DE LUNE is the suggestion. Connections have clearly had to exercise plenty of patience where the seven-year-old is concerned, but he showed on his only run of last season that he can go well when fresh and is a capable sort, so he gets the vote. Harefield looks one of the more likely improvers in the field and will probably represent a danger along with Destined To Shine and hurdling newcomers Born For War and Fairway Freddie, both of whom should be checked out for any market confidence.
  1. Santo De Lune

  3. Destined To Shine
