Verdict

Hard to escape the fact that Mont Des Avaloirs posted a solid effort on debut, which has been franked since. The four-year-old is bred to appreciate this trip and will make plenty of appeal for a saver if the odds are attractive enough. However, DROVERS LANE also appeals a likely type for a contest of this nature and has to comes into the reckoning - especially given his £135,00 price tag after winning his sole start in a point-to-point. Others worth monitoring for support include: Fortunes Hiding and Coolanly, who both represent yards that are very capable of holding their own in this type of event.
