Ex-pointer who drew a blank over hurdles but upped his game when third to The Wolf in a novice at Chepstow on chasing debut. 5 lb better off with that rival and open to improvement.

Pretty useful hurdler who jumped soundly when making a winning start over fences at Chepstow in October, with L'Air du Vent back in third. Concedes a penalty but has enough to uphold the form.

Talented sort who has never looked a natural over fences but stayed on well to get the better of Enrilo at Chepstow on reappearance. That horse has won since but he's not an obvious type to follow up.

Big-money buy after winning Irish point and off the mark at the third attempt over hurdles in novice at Chepstow 10 months ago. Type to do better as a chaser, so not ruled out.

No impact in a couple of bumpers and unlikely to feature switched to chasing after 10 months off.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

THE WOLF landed what strikes as a strong novice chase at Chepstow on his first go in this sphere and, despite a penalty, he's fancied to follow up at the likely expense of L'Air du Vent, who was an encouraging third in the same race. The Mighty Don can pose a threat if his jumping holds up.

Betting Forecast

11/4 L'air Du Vent (Fr), 2/1 The Wolf (Fr), 4/1 The Mighty Don (Ire), 12/1 Fado Des Brosses (Fr), 9/1 Eva's Oskar (Ire), 28/1 Milanford (Ire), 150/1 Botus Fleming
