No No Romeo won at Southwell in November but hasn't raced since and has a penalty to carry now. Mister Chairman is sure to attract support given connections and the fact that he's a full brother to useful 2m hurdler Deep Trouble but fellow newcomer PICCADILLY CIRCUS is a full brother to no less than Riverside Theatre. The former Ryanair Chase winner began life by winning a bumper and his sibling can follow suit. Nimbus Gale stayed on late at Haydock in November but probably won't come into his own until tackling hurdles.
