Trevaylor Boy went backwards last time after a promising debut at Uttoxeter but Princess Annabelle showed a bit more at Towcester on her latest start. It would be no surprise if a newcomer proved good enough to win this, however, and the speculative vote goes to MIGHTY MOBB. He's a half-brother to three winners including a bumper winner and Philip Hobbs' charge should give a good account along with Yabadabadoo, also related to several National Hunt winners.
