Seigneur Des Bois has the beating of Minella Theatre on his second in a decent contest at Newbury a couple of weeks ago and has to be a leading contender in this. COOMBE HILL is the elder statesman of this party but was second in this 12 months ago, finishing more than two lengths ahead of third-placed Martys Mission. Charlotte Fear's veteran is 4lb better off with the latter now and can go one better this year. Richard's Sundance, a previous course and distance winner, looks best of the rest as Shy John's point-to-point form is nothing to write home about.
