Red Courtier won easily at last month having finished second on his hurdles bow at but COOL MACAVITY had a higher rating on the Flat and gets 7lb here. Nicky 's five-year-old won over 1m2f on the level and should find 2m no problem over timber so gets the vote. is lightly raced and may be capable of better but it's difficult to make a case for Abbraccio and My Lord on what they've shown so far and Audacious is best watched on debut.
