ENCHANTED GARDEN ran well behind Titus Bolt at Perth last time and looks sure to get involved off the same mark. Malcom Jefferson's charge is preferred to Listen And Learn, who just missed out at Taunton in November but has been raised 6lb for his trouble. Parc Des Princes has been placed on his last couple of outings but Dark Energy has the stronger form with an earlier fourth at Wincanton giving him every chance in this. Kayaan could also make the frame but Get Home Now has looked in the handicapper's grip since winning here in August.
