The Gordon Elliott bandwagon is rolling merrily along now after a quiet summer and ECLAIR DE BEAUFEU appeals considerably for the yard here. The French import was backed as if defeat was not contemplated on stable debut at this track recently but the son of Monitor Closely was beaten into third spot in a large-field maiden hurdle. Nevertheless, he only succumbed by half a length and that form rates as the best on offer. He'll progress for the run too. Eagle Roque and Killacolla have solid form and experience to call upon and harbour place claims and Sams Profile displayed considerable promise between the flags and in a bumper, although he may need the run. Charmed Life is a possible improver and Email Rose and Encore Lui are the newcomers to be noted in the market.
