Solidago hasn't raced since finishing second at Gowran in September but Shuh Shuh Gah made a promising start when third at Carlisle earlier this month and Nemi has already been placed at Ffos Las and Musselburgh. EDUARD has a solid jumping pedigree and is a half-brother to bumper winner Cornerback. Brian Harding's mount looks the pick of Nicky Richards' two runners ahead of Duke Of Navan and can make a winning debut. Northern Oscar is another newcomer to note.
