Memorabilia hasn't had much racing over the last couple of years but has a progressive profile over fences. Gallox Bridge is decent over this trip when getting his act together while it's about time Sands Cove was getting his head in front. Bold Henry is very lightly-raced but has been done no favours by the handicapper. Itsuptoyou has won his last two starts but is taking on better opposition now while Skint and Bullet Street usually find at least one too good. Zarzal is a course and distance winner with claims but OYSTER SHELL will be happy to return here after runs at Ascot and Haydock. Jake Greenall gets on well with the seven-year-old, who is given the nod.
