Nicky Henderson has dominated this race so Line Freedom rates highly whilst Bianco Fuji makes some appeal but it may prove worth taking a chance with ANEYEFORANEYE on debut. Her Irish handler does well with his horses in this sphere and it looks significant that he's brought this filly to England to make her debut and that he's engaged the services of Tony McCoy. She's a half-sister to a bumper winner as well as useful hurdler Adroit Approach so also looks the part on paper. McCoy was aboard Bianco Fuji when she made a promising debut at Newbury so it looks significant that he's deserted Oliver Sherwood's mare but she she still merits respect. Line Freedom couldn't have won with any more ease on debut and can probably be forgiven her subsequent Fibresand defeat; she's undoubtedly better than that and rates the one to beat but a chance is taken with Aneyeforaneye.
