Verdict

ADRIEN DU PONT hung badly on the run-in last month at Ascot and was denied by the mare Happy Diva. She’s a decent novice, however, and Paul Nicholls’ six-year-old should really be getting back to winning ways in this if he plots a straighter course. Rayvin Black could make a race of it if granted an easy lead as he won at Ludlow two runs ago before weakening at the last at Sandown - he won a Grade 2 over hurdles here in 2016. Jeu De Mots is almost certainly better than he showed at Hereford but it’s hard to make a case for Sparky's Spirit.
