Verdict

A winner over hurdles in France, Private Equity has his first start for Nicky Henderson and is sure to have been well-schooled for his fencing debut. Ulysse Collonges won over both hurdles and fences in France and continued his winning ways for Chris Grant at Wetherby recently. He'll go close and is preferred to Dark And Dangerous and Kapga De Cerisy. However, ULCK DU LIN appeared to run out of steam on his comeback and chasing debut at Stratford last month and with that run under his belt, Paul Nicholls' charge gets the nod to open his account.
