Verdict

Tim Vaughan runs two in this but it looks like ex-chaser PIMENT D'ESTRUVAL is the stable pick with Richard Johnson on board. He was no match for a rejuvenated Sud Pacifique at Stratford last month but was a winner at that track in July and a repeat of the earlier effort would make him tough to beat in this company. Donnachas Chant was tailed off at Stratford last time while the fact that Stadium Of Light made his hurdling debut in a Cartmel seller suggests connections don't have high hopes for him this winter. Lillioftheballet was a long way behind when third at Perth but may be best of the rest.
