Duke Of Lucca is a useful hurdler with three victories to his credit but though doing little wrong in his two runs over fences he hasn't quite matched his hurdles form so far. Habbie Simpson produced several very good efforts in novice company over timber and was fancied to make a winning start over fences at Ffos Las but fell when there with every chance. Joker Choker, another with a trio of hurdling successes, is bred for chasing and should make his mark but SANG BLEU is the interesting one here and gets the vote. A winner of a bumper and over timber in France, he hasn't shown too much so far for Paul Nicholls but his pedigree is all about chasing and he looks just the type to go on to better things.
