Verdict

Paul Nicholls has often given promising types educations in races like this and this course, and GRAND SANCY could be the latest. Having run very well on two of his three starts so far he wouldn't need to find much improvement (if any) to get off the mark here and looks the one to side with. Colin Tizzard's yard may finally be picking up into some form and so Storm Home seems the main danger, ahead of Flight To Milan.
  1. Grand Sancy
  2. Storm Home
  3. Flight To Milan
