Verdict

CHAMERON showed some class for Paul Nicholls earlier in his career and looked revitalised between the flags last year, so he's well fancied to make a comfortable winning debut in hunters before having his sights raised. Envoye Special could trouble the selection if able to find some of his old spark, while Matts Commission deserves a mention based on his pointing exploits.

  1. CHAMERON (FR)
  2. ENVOYE SPECIAL (FR)
  3. MATTS COMMISSION (IRE)
