Capisci was all out to hold off Wicklewood over a shorter trip here last month and the runner-up is a couple of pounds better off today. But he's since finished well beaten behind Malibu Sun at Fontwell, though the top weight has a penalty to carry here. Ali Brewer is a shrewd handler and her SI BIEN is thrown in here on his best form over fences. It's a while since he appeared over the larger obstacles but market support would make him a very interesting candidate. Redlynch Rock hasn't shown a great deal over fences so far but looks best of the rest.
