Doncesar De Pretot was placed in France before finishing second at Fakenham on his debut for Olly Murphy. But he has a bit to find with LARKBARROW LAD (NAP) on these terms and the latter gets the vote to come out best having found only one too good at Ascot the last time he raced in maiden company. Accordingtogino has also placed in a maiden hurdle while Imperial Knight ran well in novice company at Ascot last month behind a couple of higher rated horses than these. Meteorite makes most appeal of those hurdling for the first time ahead of Oldabbey Bridge.
