Whatmore (4/1), Black Corton (11/2), Commanche Red (11/2), Militarian (17/2), Adrien Du Pont (9/1), Valtor (9/1), Django Django (12/1), Regal Encore (14/1), Flying Angel (16/1), Might Bite (22/1), Mister Malarky (25/1), Townshend (28/1), Blaklion (33/1), Walk In The Mill (50/1)

Though disappointing in a Grade 2 Kempton novice in February, COMMANCHE RED looked very good indeed when brushing aside subsequent Cheltenham Festival winner Simply The Betts in a handicap there on Boxing Day. He remains with potential in this sphere and gets the nod ahead of Valtor, who is 2-3 at Ascot and resumes on a workable mark. Whatmore and the admirable Black Corton are others to consider.
