Verdict

Flat winner Dubai Crest got off the mark over hurdles at Huntingdon in March but ran no sort of race when favourite at Hereford shortly after and has questions to answer now. Bumper winner Hes Our Lad wasn't unfancied when scoring over timber for the first time at Stratford, however, and may still be improving. But he has to give 7lb to COTILLION, who was taking on decent opposition when second at Chepstow and Hereford over the winter and can open his account here. Massena was second at Auteuil in October but weakened quickly and was pulled up on her UK debut at Sandown and may need more time.
