Chacun Pour Soi. Done nothing wrong in his prep. Stable in great form a worthy fav.

Nube Negra. Great horse and one that could go close. I worry that the stables runners yesterday were not finishing off their races.

Put the Kettle On Last years Arkle winner. Sure to put up a good run. 3 from 3 at Cheltenham.

Politologue. Last years winner when the race cut up but still ran on well. Chance but others offer better form.

Cilaos Emery. Live contender with a big starting price. Could cause a surprise.

Sceau Royal. Good horse trying for the thrird time. May need others to fail to win here.

First Flow Unbeaten in last 6 starts. Improving but would need a significant softening to show best but who knows?

Rouge Vif. Course and Distance winner back in October. May not be up to this class.

Note book. Good horse who may not be suited by this course. Has been beaten by fav and unlikely to turn the form around.

Greaneteen. Will need to show significant improvement to be in shake up here.

Selection Chacun Pour Soi NB: Cilaos Emery.
