Forecast

Sametegal (7/2), Don Poli (5/1), Minellacelebration (15/2), Joe Farrell (8/1), One Style (17/2), Brother Tedd (10/1), Vieux Lion Rouge (12/1), Vintage Clouds (12/1), Ballydine (12/1), Pobbles Bay (14/1), Perfect Candidate (16/1), Activial (16/1), Theatre Guide (18/1)

Verdict

Paul Nicholls has his team in cracking form this autumn so SAMETEGAL, who posted solid efforts in defeat last season, gets the nod to make a winning return to action. C&D scorer Minellacelebration is only 1 lb higher that when bagging a nice prize at Uttoxeter in July and heads the dangers along with Vieux Lion Rouge, who has a good record fresh. Ballydine is also on the shortlist.

  1. SAMETEGAL (FR)
  2. MINELLACELEBRATION (IRE)
  3. VIEUX LION ROUGE (FR)
