Deshan was placed in all three starts here last year, including one over course and distance. But MULCAHYS HILL was backed in a much better race than this at Chepstow when last seen after an earlier second on easy going at Ffos Las and is fancied to open his account. Cybalko is a French-bred half-brother to two winning jumpers and David Bridgwater’s four-year-old may prove the pick of the newcomers.
