Paul Nolan looks to have a very smart prospect on his hands in DEFY LOGIC. A bumper and maiden hurdle winner, he came up against a pair of very useful performers in his two later starts and with fences likely to suit even better he's definitely one to follow. Golanbrook was a bit disappointing over fences last season but made an encouraging reappearance behind Art Of Logistics at Gowran and with that under his belt looks certain to get into the frame. Miley Shah and Blissful Moment look best of the remainder.
