Forecasts

The Russian Doyen (9/4), Ok Corral (9/4), Drovers Lane (3/1), Le Breuil (3/1), Jenkins (3/1), Dentley De Mee (20/1)

Verdict

An intriguing contest in which none of the six runners can be dismissed with any confidence. Le Breuil sets the form standard over fences and should be involved in the finish, while The Russian Doyen impressed with his jumping on his chasing debut and Drovers Lane is a progressive sort who clearly enjoys the challenge of fences. Jenkins had such an easy debut that he looks sure to improve for his subsequent fourth at this track, but his stable companion OK CORRAL looks the better prospect and boasts Cheltenham Festival form which entitles him to win this if he takes to chasing.
  1. Ok Corral
  2. The Russian Doyen
  3. Le Breuil
