The market is obviously going to be a major factor regarding what is expected from these newcomers but Paul Nicholls' Praetura is certainly one for the short-list being a full brother to a bumper winner. Bilbrook Blaze also represents a powerful yard while Emma Lavelle runs both Abitofbob and the filly Starlight Sonata, though neither stand out on breeding. Jollyallan could be interesting but BEARS RAILS is a half-brother to the useful Kells Belle so gets a tentative vote ahead of Colin Tizzard's other entry Zanstra and the others.
