Verdict

Lancetto sets a decent standard on his third to Al Ferof in a Grade 1 at Sandown in December and has been proved very consistent over fences. He'll make a decent handicapper next season while L'Eldorado won at Hexham in the autumn, though has had his limitations exposed since. DOMTALINE has managed a couple of wins over hurdles at Chepstow but he's bred to be a chaser and, getting plenty of weight from his two likely market rivals, can get off the mark at the first time of asking. The others are difficult to recommend on what they've shown so far.
