Only Val D'Allier of these has previous experience. Jim Old's charge being beaten less than five lengths when third in a minor contest in the French provinces in May. He may not be good enough to prevent GARDE LA VICTOIRE making a winning debut however. Philip Hobbs also run Allons Zee but Richard Johnson has chosen to ride his well-bred stablemate who runs in the Whateley colours made famous by Captain Chris and Menorah - he should have a bright future. Demographic is Flat-bred so shouldn't be short of pace but could be up against an above-average fellow newcomer here.
