Forecast

Notebook (5/4), Advantage Point (10/3), Eclair De Beaufeu (7/2), Quantatmental (7/1), Brog Ahaon (14/1), Ingleby Mackenzie (25/1), Princely Conn (33/1), De Bennette (100/1), Sillogue Pio (100/1), Subset (100/1)

Verdict
NOTEBOOK and Eclair De Beaufeu are closely matched on hurdles form and it will be a fascinating battle between the pair if they both take to the larger obstacles. Slight preference is for the former given he finished the season better than the latter but it is is very difficult to choose between them which may be reflected in the market. Brog Ahaon looked a hurdler on the upgrade so it is interesting seeing him having a try over fences while the youngster Quantatmental is also worthy of closer inspection for place purposes.
