Verdict

Gordon Elliott is bidding for three straight wins and the market has been strong in favour of Dallas Des Pictons. He's progressive but must race from 10lb higher and drops back from 3m on his recent win. Stablemate Cartwright is also going the right way quickly and will handle testing ground. Last year's third Early Doors and Getareason are worth considering but DISCORDANTLY has caught the eye in some strong maiden hurdles so far and could have plenty more to say come at a decent price. Second in the Fred Winter last year, Style De Garde joins Burrows Park and Mount Mews as possible British-trained scorers in the new Festival finale.
  1. Discordantly
  2. Cartwright
