Icone D'aubrelle (5/4), Geometrical (10/3), Creggan White Hare (9/2), Flaming Ambition (7/1), Alchemystique (15/2), Hunky (50/1), Pot Of Paint (80/1), Chronos (150/1), Bravethewaves (150/1)

Verdict

ICONE D'AUBRELLE is seemingly well regarded and, in quite a thin race, he's a straightforward selection to make a successful British debut. Geometrical could obviously take a hand if he can get close to the useful level he achieved on the Flat and, Alchemystique warrants consideration after upsetting huge odds at Southwell when last seen.
