Doktor Glaz was well backed when third at Wetherby on his debut but NICOLAS CHAUVIN is likely to be all the rage in this finale following a decent start behind Gaelic Myth at Ludlow when given plenty to do. His trainer should know where he stands with Market Rasen third Toola Boola on a line through winner Spartan Angel. The Last Leg is a probable improver but none of the others make much appeal against the principals.
