Herod The Great showed ability on the Flat, going close in a handicap at Newbury in August. He'll have had plenty of schooling and looks the likely danger to DISPOUR. Donald McCain's recent acquisition won a handicap at Maisons-Lafitte for Mikel Delzangles in June and looks the type to make a hurdler. The filly Nellie Forbush may be best of the rest.
