A few of these have decent claims but BE MY DEPUTY has been the most consistent and gets the vote on that basis. He's now won three of his last four starts after scoring at Leicester last month and can defy another 6lb rise. Great's Autrechene has been pulled-up either side of also winning at Leicester while Keeverfield has been raised 10lb for his recent victory at Towcester. Peaks Of Fire landed a novice event on his chasing debut in heavy ground at Sedgefield, but Farewellatmidnight makes more appeal as he was clear of the field when falling at the last at Fakenham and will be looking to make amends in this.
