In depth

Verdict

Fredo carries 7lb extra for winning at Sandown last Friday. He'll find this tougher, while Caulfields Venture narrowly won a lower grade chase at Fontwell before following up in an all-weather bumper and will need further progress to figure. KELTIC RHYTHM scored at Leicester last month on his chasing debut and there should be more to come from him over fences. Neil King's charge is just preferred to Mentalist, who has blinkers applied for the first-time and has a chance on an earlier second to Wood Yer. Mister Grez and Passato have the past form to figure if back to their best.
