Went close to opening his chase account at Market Rasen (19.2f) when last seen in October (final run for Tom Symonds). However, returns 4 lb higher for new yard, so more will be needed.

Successful Irish pointer who confirmed the promise of his chasing debut when winning 12-runner handicap at Plumpton (19.8f) 24 days ago, again jumping soundly and going with enthusiasm. More to come.

FLECK IVY impressed with his jumping when making his second chase start a winning one at Plumpton last month and looks capable of following up with further improvement on the cards. Demon d'Aunou is down to a good mark and needs monitoring closely in the betting.

5/1 Demon D'aunou (Fr), 25/1 Royal Plaza, 15/2 Veiled Secret (Ire), 7/2 Arcade Attraction (Ire), 2/1 Fleck Ivy (Ire)
