Verdict

Erlkonig won twice on the Flat in Germany and makes his debut for Tony Mullins. He's one to note as is Queen Alphabet, a winning bumper with some fair form to her credit. ENJOY RESPONSIBLY has shown plenty of promise over timber since scoring between the flags on his debut and his close second to Roman General on fast ground last month suggests he can go one better. Magical Moon has now had 23 career starts and never won despite several near misses while Voluptueux ran a fair race on his only start over hurdles and has a bumper victory to his credit.
