Just the three runners but an interesting contest nonetheless with the Paul Nicholls trained EGLANTINE DU SEUIL sure to prove popular getting weight from both her rivals. She ran on well to score at Worcester on just her second start over fences last month and with the likelihood of further improvement she should prove hard to beat. If she has any chinks in her armour it could yet be stamina over this three and a quarter miles, with Ballymoy a serious rival. The eight-year-old has now got his act together over the larger obstacles with three wins on the trot at Catterick, Ludlow, and Perth but he has to give 11lb to the mare which may be too much to ask. Premier D'troice has her first start for Katy Price after leaving the Archie Watson yard following a Fontwell success, but looks up against it barring any jumping errors.
