RASH MOVE has won three times under Rules over this trip for today's jockey and goes well fresh. He can make a winning reappearance as Island Life didn't show a great deal on his return at Musselburgh and Herecomesthetruth was a big outsider when winning a point-to-point at Cottenham in December, though would have a chance if back to his best. Bold Addition was with Paul Nicholls last season and has won four times between the flags but has been off for a while and is probably best watched on this occasion.
