Verdict

ELF DE RE won a Kelso maiden by 21 lengths and led for most of the way when tackling 2m6f on heavy ground back there next time - he can defy a penalty. Le Cheval Noir, a winning point-to-pointer and bumper, ran well for a long way on his hurdling bow over 2m5f at Wetherby and will be better for the experience. Do Your Job won a point-to-point in October and led for a long way on his debut over timber on heavy going at Uttoxeter.
