Verdict

Cheveley Park Stud have made their intentions clear this season with their venture in to National hunt season with a number of winners over the last six months. LETHAL STEPS can carry on their good start here following fairly solid runs in the Fred Winter at the festival and when third of 14 at Wexford earlier this month. Defy De Mee was a €190,000 purchase at sales last year after winning in France and can emerge as the biggest danger here under Ruby Walsh while The Last Emperor and Generator City look cable of hitting the frame.
