1 ACEY MI­LAN

2 DID THEY LEAVE-OUT TO

3 CARE­FULLY SE­LECTED

ACEY MI­LAN (nb) has al­ready achieved a high level of form in bumpers – and there is more to come.

Af­ter a sec­ond at Ex­eter in Oc­to­ber, An­thony Honey­ball’s four-year-old won his next three, be­gin­ning with vic­tory at Win­can­ton in De­cem­ber.

Suc­cess­ful in Listed com­pany on Chel­tenham’s New Year’s Day card, Acey Mi­lan was also scored in the same grade at New­bury last month, mo­tor­ing 11 lengths clear of Woul du adam and eve it, with pre­vi­ous win­ner Nestor Park back in fifth.

That form is solid – the third and fourth horses also went into the race on the back of vic­to­ries – and Acey Mi­lan looks the real deal.

Black­bow, Wil­lie Mullins’ Care­fully Se­lected, Tor­nado Flyer, Col­reevy and Rel­e­gate all need con­sid­er­ing, while the Nick Gif­ford-trained Did they leaveu out to also has more to of­fer.
