Za Beau is interesting if sorting out his jumping, however a safer bet may RED MAN RAY who will appreciate this better ground and first-time cheek-pieces. The selection was disappointing last time, as he weakened away into a heavily beaten sixth. He has different ground today and he should be capable of much better as Tom George sends his horse up a long way from Gloucestershire. There are several interesting chasing debutants, most notable Description and Duke Of Malfi. The former was thought good enough to contest a Grade Two Novice' hurdle last season and looks the type to make up into a fair chaser. Duke Of Malfi returns to the track after some time off and the market may help guide to his chance on his chasing debut. Za Beau departed at the first last time but had previously been holding his form well and a repeat of his Carlisle effort when winning in July would see him go very close. At a price Toulouse Express may bounce back from a poor run, however for the winner we will return to Red Man Ray as the nomination.
