Verdict

Paul Nicholls is the leading trainer at this track and THEMILANHORSE is his only runner at today's meeting. Winner of a Newton Abbot bumper in March, his dam was sister to a couple of hurdle winners at around this trip and that's enough encouragement to give the five-year-old the vote today. Bevnott is certainly worth a second look, however, as Lucy Wadham's ex-pointer won a couple of bumpers over the summer. Golden Call wasn't disgraced on his UK debut when third at Perth and makes more appeal than last week's Ludlow third My Girl Millie while Tour Des Champs has his first start under Rules.
