Verdict

The former Phillip Hobbs inmate, ALLEE BLEUE can get off the mark at the first time of asking for for trainer Gordon Elliott and new connections. The eight-year-old son of Mount Nelson can see off the attentions of the Jessica Harrington-trained Fintara and Matin D'anjou who has won two of his last four chase starts.
  1. Allee Bleue
  2. Fintara
  3. Matin D'Anjou
