Douchkirk couldn't cope with a penalty at Stratford in June and that may be the case again here. Flemensgael can improve on his third at Uttoxeter, however, and has more scope than Moon Devil who disappointed when favourite at Stratford in July. RESTE JEUNE lacks the experience of the aforementioned trio but he comes from excellent French jumping stock and his half-brother, Rosy Cyborg, was a decent bumper in Ireland. Nick Gifford's five-year-old is fancied to make a winning start, though fellow newcomers Dixie Case and Swincombe Stone are also worth watching for future reference.
