Dan Skelton usually sends a strong team to his local haunt and Hartur D'oudairies is likely to be strongly supported on Rules and stable debut after landing his sole French start three days shy of a year ago, after which he was bought by JP McManus. He'll probably be short and ROBELLI could prove a value option at an each-way price. An easy winner of a Lingfield bumper in January, he's part of a strong raid on the prize for Ian Williams who also saddles the promising Party Business. Let's Have Another looked in need of his debut and his yard is in fine form, with Sidewaysinmilan, a bumper winner here in March, also respected in a good novice hurdle.
