Cheltenham Festival heroine Eglantine Du Seuil returns to race action for the first time since June as she tackles three rivals at Stratford on Thursday afternoon.
The former Dawn Run winner secured her first success since that Prestbury Park victory two years ago when landing at the second attempt over fences at Worcester back in May, but she fell on her next outing.
Previously based at Clossuton with Willie Mullins, the seven-year-old mare now represents Paul Nicholls and bids to get over that tumble at Newton Abbot on her debut at the Warwickshire track this week.
She opposes the hat-trick seeking Presentandcounting, who has been in fine fettle for Donald McCain Jr since switching to the larger obstacles and hasn’t finished outside the top two on his last seven starts, never failing to finish outside the front three.
Also in contention is previous course successor Some Day Soon, who ended a two-year drought without a win at Stratford last month, seeing off Thursday rival Forecast by 17-lengths.
