LE BREUIL offered plenty to work on at Kelso on reappearance in October and given he shaped well in seventh from 9 lb higher in this a race year ago (during a barren period for the yard) he looks very interesting. Coo Star Sivola isn't an easy one to assess but he's dropped to an appealing mark, while Walk In The Mill demands a mention chasing a third Becher win.

  1. LE BREUIL (FR)
  2. COO STAR SIVOLA (FR)
  3. WALK IN THE MILL (FR)
