River Dun has been placed at Galway and Catterick in his two starts to date, though the form is nothing special. Mr Monochrome is a half-brother to the useful hurdler/chaser Attaglance and should have a future. Glingerside is by Milan and another newcomer to note. Late Date and Tyrrell's Succes have form in point-to-points but we'll stick with Hexham maiden winner IMPERIAL ELOQUENCE in the belief that there should be more come.
