HOW THE RACE WILL BE RUN . . .
Prominent racers are often favoured on the New Course over fences so Ahoy Senor, Stattler and Minella Indo will probably be among those that take the field along. Galopin Des Champs is usually settled in midfield alongside the likes of Protektorat, A Plus Tard and Bravemansgame who looks sure to keep himself in touch courtesy of his precise jumping.
