Verdict

Unlikely to be too many that get into this, given the presence of Calva D'Auge and FRASER ISLAND, who look likely to have it between them. The latter is just preferred after looking useful in two hurdles runs so far, and perhaps being open to more improvement on these terms. Paul Nicholls' runner is much respected, however, after winning last time. Beaufort is an interesting hurdles debutant and could battle for minor honours with Milreu Has.
  1. Fraser Island
  2. Calva D'Auge
  3. Beaufort
