Stayed on really well over 2f shorter here behind Journey With Me, and then hacked up over 3m. The trip is fine – massive chance.
It’s a match with Fil D’or, and based on what Pied Piper did at Cheltenham, Vauban is very decent having run him close. I also think Leopardstown might suit Vauban better as Fil D’or will love the really long straight in Cheltenham come March.
Should be nearly favourite for this on a line through Ferny Hollow, I’m guessing Ferny Hollow is a good bit ahead of Blue Lord, so Riviere D’Etel the one to beat in my book.
Was eyecatching behind Panda Boy the last day in what was probably a prep for today, was hampered by a loose horse and then stayed on well and wasn’t penalised by the handicapper for it.
