Engai has been in good form over hurdles this summer and should play a part if taking to the larger obstacles. Baccalaureate has done well over timber since joining Sue Smith in the spring and can be forgiven his latest run at Market Rasen, where he was out of his depth. But we fancy AVOCA PROMISE to shrug off an absence and land this for Charlie Egerton as he's already had a couple of runs over fences and has gone well fresh in the past. There should be more to come over the coming months.
