Lebanna didn't show much progress last time having finished runner-up at Carlisle on her debut with River Bollin back in fourth. The latter may well reverse running on only his second start. Amour Collonges has joined Chris Grant having been placed in bumpers in France but the form is hard to assess and CHEBSEY BEAU makes more appeal. He just failed to catch the winner on last month's racecourse debut at Carlisle and can open his account in this with Clarence Beeks and Lola, a half-sister to top-class chaser Ashley Brook, worth noting amongst the newcomers.
