Across The Bay is improving but this is easily his stiffest task to date over fences and he may struggle to get the better of QUITO DE LA ROQUE in receipt of only 4lb. Colm Murphy's charge was a good third to Kauto Stone on his reappearance in the Grade 1 Champion Chase at Down Royal last month and runner-up First Lieutenant went on to finish third in last week's Hennessy. Calgary Bay is a very good handicapper on his day but may need more time after pulling up at Cheltenham while it's too early to determine whether Wayward Prince's second in the Charlie Hall was a genuine return to form as he was well behind Calgary Bay at Doncaster earlier in the year.
