Verdict

Lever Du Soleil has to be respected having travelled over from Gavin Cromwell’s yard in County Meath. He won a Gowran maiden in November and has performed well since in Grade 3 company but possibly lacks the scope of RED FORCE ONE. With Paul Nicholls continuing to fire in the winners, it’s almost certain that the three-time Flat winner will take a step forward from a promising debut over timber in the Grade 2 Adonis at Kempton. Honorable has shown some ability while Favori De Sivola hails from solid jumping stock so is worth monitoring.
