In a race dominated by Wille Mullins runners, James Du Berlais looks to arguably be his strongest chance along with Gaillard Du Mesnil.
He showed good form overseas in France before joining this trainer's stable in 2021. He was pitched into Grade 1 races and managed to finish a decent second at a double-digit price to stablemate Klassical Dream over 3 miles at Punchestown.
Went chasing for the first time after a very long break of 612 days and it could not have gone any better as he cruised to victory winning by 15 lengths.
It was heavy ground that day too so only more can be expected in better conditions and he will get that here.
Holds multiple entries for this year's Cheltenham Festival and has the potential to improve and make further progress.
