Forecast

Friend Or Foe (4/1), Elysees (9/2), The Knot Is Tied (11/2), Groveman (15/2), Legal History (8/1), Idilico (12/1), Rose Sea Has (14/1), Fanzio (16/1), Prabeni (16/1), Chaparral Prince (20/1), Brandy James (22/1), Tazka (25/1), Ghost Serge (33/1), Glenpark (40/1)

Verdict
In a fiendishly difficult contest where the vast majority of these are handicapping for the first time a chance is taken on ELYSEES whose second to Quel Destin in a Grade Two when last over hurdles rates very smart form. Paul Nicholls' Friend Or Foe won his only start for the yard so must be respected also. Gary Moore won this last year and his filly Tazka is another of interest here.
  1. Elysees
  2. Friend Or Foe
