Verdict

EDEYMI's second to Une Artiste in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham is comfortably the form pick and, as there's probably more to come, he should be up to taking this. Arnaud ran a fine race in fifth that day and wasn't far behind but he's 3lb worse off and may struggle to reverse the form. Sportsmaster and Gorgeous Sixty, who both finished a long way behind, have a lot of ground to make up. Leroy Parker, beaten by stablemate Blue Cannon on his hurdling bow, looked a nice prospect when beating His Excellency here in November and with further progress likely should go well.
