Verdict

AL DANCER failed to fire in the Caspian Caviar at Cheltenham last time but his third in the Paddy Power there prior to that is undoubtedly good form and he can bounce back with this first attempt at 3m looking well worth a go. Cap du Nord is a must for the shortlist after 3 excellent efforts in strong handicaps. Double Shuffle's latest C&D win has been boosted since so he's also shortlisted.

  1. AL DANCER (FR)
  2. CAP DU NORD (FR)
  3. DOUBLE SHUFFLE (IRE)
