FOR TWO is regarded as a chasing prospect but scored over timber on his only start in France and made a decent start for new connections at Aintree in October where he just failed to hold Handazan. These testing conditions are made for him and he looks the one to be on. Sir Fredlot is probably only moderate and didn't have much to do to beat three rivals at Plumpton so it could be the newcomer Angelot Du Berlais who carries most threat. He had some reasonable form on the Flat in France and hails from a yard who know how to get one ready.
