Tour D'Argent is the highest rated of these over hurdles and will probably appreciate not having to do any jumping today, having fallen in a couple of recent tries over fences. But there's no guarantee that he'll appreciate this quicker surface and we'll take him on with GREENLAW. Charlie Longsdon's gelding would prefer a longer trip but won his bumper on good going and was in fair form over hurdles in the autumn. Be All Man could also figure with Gary Moore's string going well. He had very decent form in bumpers in the early part of last season, though plans have gone awry over timber. The mare Moulin De La Croix may be best of the rest.
