Danger In The Park was beaten a long way on his only start and faces some well-connected newcomers. Royal Palladium hails from a yard going well and is the first foal of a useful French jumper while Benefitofhindsight is out of a mare who won three times on the Flat. DARK DESIRE is by Generous and a full brother to the dual Bumper winner Diligent so he's handed the vote though Nigel Twiston-Davies won this last year and I Am Colin has to be respected as he's out of a winning hurdler. Vice Et Vertu is bred to be a staying chaser and may not quite have the pace for this, a remark that also applies to Rum Expectations.
