Dystonia's Revenge won an incident-packed renewal of this a year ago and is 3lb lower despite a good run over the C&D last time. Harris Hawk looked a decent staying prospect when completing a Newcastle double in March but has run poorly on his two most recent starts while Fentara has had very little experience over fences. BRUNSWICK GOLD easily won over the C&D on New Year's Day and a recent run in a jumper's bumper will have put him straight. He just gets the nod over Ballyoliver, who has been raised 9lb for a battling victory at Newbury. The Hollinwell is an enigma who will no doubt turn up again one day when least expected.
