In depth

Verdict

Tough Talkin Man beat Kayalar over track and trip two weeks ago but there may not be much between the pair on today's revised terms. Supreme Bob is usually thereabouts but invariably finds at least one too good and Another Kate might need this. Shanks A Lot, MIST THE BOAT and Steel Summit are all tackling fences for the first time. The latter pair clashed over hurdles at Fakenham last time with Tim Vaughan's charge coming out on top and he can confirm the form and take this.
