Verdict

Ellistrin Belle was third on her debut here last month but behind today's rival Bypass, who was well beaten at Doncaster subsequently. We'd rather concentrate on newcomers Je T'Aime and KOBEN JET, with preference just for the latter. The former is a half-sister to Willie Mullin's smart hurdler/chaser Jy Vole but Steve Gollings' mare is closely related to Flat winner Dakiyah and jumper Darenjan and, being by Sakhee, may just have more natural speed.
