Forecasts

Brave Kingdom (6/5), Fair Frontieres (5/2), Lossiemouth (7/1), Viva Lavilla (15/2), Harper's Brook (8/1)

Verdict

BRAVE KINGDOM was impressive on his Chepstow hurdle debut and is fancied to provide Paul Nicholls with a second win in this since 2019. Fair Frontieres is another who arrives on the back of a comfortable success this autumn and is feared most ahead of Lossiemouth.
