This race could be more opened than it seems. (5) FEU FOLLET is a good consistent performer over both hurdles and fences and is definitely a key player but there are several other dangers. (2) FARNICE will surely come on from his re-entry run and could win if he is back at the top of his game. The same formula applies to the promising (4) KAPDAM. (1) BEL APSIS and (3) THRILLING are two more for the shortlist.

Over The Valley 156

Unplaced once and pulled-up twice in three starts over hurdles. Best to overlook

Over The Valley historical data/form

(1) KING WILLIAM is the one that has shown most ability so far and this is why he carries the top-weight. He should definitely be a big player in this line-up but he has to face a couple of solid opponents and the improving (5) MONTE CRISTO could be one of them following his excellent runner-up effort at Clairefontaine. Stablemate to the selection (2) AUTOUR DE MINUIT should leave behind his recent fall at Compiegne.

(1) ELISA DES OBEAUX posted a promising effort on return at Auteuil last time out. She has a winning chance on the back of this performance. (7) GALOUSKA has been knocking hard at this level of competition and is the biggest danger to the selection. A consistent performer in the provinces (9) LIBERTY BELLE could make a big splash first time at Auteuil.
