Connections of EDEN DU HOUX presumably began the season with Cheltenham aspirations - and he is still in a couple of the big novice races at the Festival - but he fluffed his lines on his first couple of hurdles runs. A wind operation did the trick, though, because he dug deep at Chepstow and victory here off a decent mark could book him his Prestbury Park ticket. The Con Man is progressing well and heads a large list of dangers that also includes 2017 winner Air Horse One, his stablemate Jolly's Cracked It and consistent juvenile Nordano.
